Hi David,
Many thanks for your reply.

After a quick review, I found that the Raptor is simpler. It is intended only to gather and count authentications (logons) and only report: the total number of authentications, and the number of unique authenticated users.

It seems to me that MetricDocs (*) is the choice. Its purpose is to collect access data from different access log files (Voyager, EZ Proxy, COUNTER), and then create consolidated access reports. According to the developers say, it is used to answer "who did / used x?" 


Best regards,

There are a couple of tools that can be used to analyse EZproxy logs.
I haven't tried either yet myself, but they're on my list of things to
investigate later in the year:
