Count the number of open sessions and the users associated with those sessions.


How do i do that i'm a newbie u have any idea..
C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

IDfSessionManager.getStatistics().getSessions(String <docbase>)
Then read the info from each session. Use the dfc api for class information.

You instantiate the idfsessionmanager using a DfClient & your job login credentials or you can use this.getSessionManager() from within a TBO


By doing the above..can i capture the stats into a log file..? and what about the IP address will it capture the information..
if you want to track logging via a log file use this location

D:\Documentum\dba\log\00003039\chanchal  where D:\Documentum is my installation location and chanchal is my username who logs in. This directory will contain all the user information who logs and its time stamp will be updated when he logs.

Rsulliv's solution will also work for you and it will give you IP address also (of the client who is logging in)

If you are using Documentum adminstration then in SESSION section you can get all the info.


Hey ,
