Terminal Services...Can't find a way to monitor activity

Is it possible to monitor Remote Desktop connection activity? It doesn't seem to show up in the standard logs.

I'd like to be able to see who logged on and when over a given time period (of a week, for example).

Thanks!

There's the system monitor:  http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/Library/9aa3769d-f7b0-4c7e-bafe-5d3e57f089a81033.mspx

But I've always found that to be a pain to use.  There are a number of 3rd party tools that will monitor things for you:
http://www.msterminalservices.org/software/Monitoring-&-management most have free trials, but I tend to like the tools offered by www.SysInternals.com

Wow...just tried Sysinternals and site was down. Found out that it sucked into the MS vortex. I guess every good thing must come to an end.

No, it's just been overloaded since the MS announcement.
