Playtime

I know that I am not the only one who faces trying to track and minimize the amount of playing on the internet during regular work hours. Is there anyway to track and prove that a user is playing on the internet when they should be working using the PA?

By the response I got I am beginning to think this is either not possible or not done :)

@jdprovine,

It's technically viable to gather a rough estimate of how much time someone is spending on 'non-work' tasks depending on your configuration and how much you really want to trust the session information. I'm not going to get into the how because I don't believe that technology should be used to address human resource issues, and the information that can be gathered can be very inaccurate depending on what the user was doing. 

This isn't something that Palo Alto really supports without a bit of a work around and calculation of the proper traffic statistics. I would tell whoever is asking that it simply can't be done in an accurate manner.
