I know of several school districts using ClarkConnect software.  It 
is a Linux based device that has some capabilities like this.  I 
have another customer using Smoothwall (http://smoothwall.net/) as 
well.  In fact, one such customer is using the Mikrotik router to 
force connections to transparently proxy behind the smoothwall box. 
I haven't seen the smoothwall interface, so I can't speak for it 
specifically, but my understanding is that what they wanted was a 
way to track websites that were being used.
