Is there a good way to determine average hourly/daily/weekly (etc) concurrent active sessions for our Screensurfer server? Other than randomly checking the console and counting the number of active sessions throughout the day. I ask because I'm trying to get a handle on how many of the 100 licenses we have are actively being utilized in order to estimate how many we will need for another Screensurfer server we intend to purchase.

Comment Using a time event-driven section and either the TEMAIL tag or an ODBC insert, you can utilize the GetNumSessions function to log to a file...the following sample will produce a line in an ASCII text file every 10 minutes-- note that the line-endings will not work in notepad.

<tesection check_sessions
 when TimeInterval is 20>
<temail profile="DiskFile_Append"
Subject="d:\\source\\ss14\\hostserver\\sessions.txt"><teshow GetNumSessions("LU_GROUP_1")+","+now("local","5","-")>
The above file can be imported into Excel for analysis--can also insert a row to an ODBC database as mentioned above...
