I am looking for applications that can do an statistical network usage. I will be putting up a server with squid proxy and would like to know of a program that can show me what pages are visited more, what users use more bandwidth and any other stats that can be found while using the server for internet access.

Sarg did it for me. Very nice analysis. – Luis Alvarado Apr 21 '12 at 18:12

If you enable the option emulate http log to on in squid it will create log files that look just like an apache log file.

Then you can use any tool that supports parsing and presenting logs for websites there are quite a few. Personally i use/like awstats
