Are there any utility out there that can log the number of login/logout on a given terminal server each day or a given time interval?


Watch Question

See this previous Q: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Citrix/Q_21756694.html

If you have enterprise edition you can do this with Resource Manager.  Otherwise you can use a simple VB script to log the data to a database or excel.  Scroll to the bottom of that previous Q to see the code I posted previously on how to log the data in Excel.  If you want it stored in a database there is a link posted near the top.

Ask the Experts


Will this work in Microsoft Terminal Server environment?

This is a script that is configured to run with Citrix... if that is not installed then this won't work.

If it's just Terminal Services you can always just put a line in the logon script or put a batch file in the startup folder.  Here is a sample command:

echo %username% %date% %time% LOGON >> C:\login.txt
