Do you mean a domaon controller not a GC (global catalog)?

You can go into the security logs in event viewer and look for the log on and log off events.

Open ComputerManagement and go to SharedFolders:Sessions.  That will show you who/what computers have an open connection to your server...

It's a bit more cryptic, but you could also open a command prompt and issue:
netstat -ano

and view the actual TCP & UDP connections open/time-wait on your server.

why would the users not be logging into the local DC i have a server in there location as a GC and in sites and services dedicated the subnet for them

the local clients should be contacting the local DC as long as it was set up in sites and services correctly.
You created a new site then added that DC to the site?
