sudosh - where is the sudosh user session id?

I see 3 separate files logged as a result of a user running sudosh

./baja10/user1-user1-script-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX
./baja10/user1-user1-time-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX
./baja10/user1-user1-input-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX

The sudosh-replay command is looking for something else, some other type of file apparently.
When I do a "sudosh-replay" without any arguments to see the available sessions, I get the following message:

baja7:/home/users/sudoshlogs#: sudosh-replay
No sessions are logged in /home/users/sudoshlogs/baja7

What format do the session files have, and what are the 3 files above used for?

*script*
*time*
*input*

Do I have sudosh misconfigured?

>> what are the 3 files above used for? <<

Those are the recordings of input/output, keyboard input, and timing information, respectively.

Did you issue "sudosh-replay" when logged in as the same user who recorded the sessions?
The location of the logfiles is user-dependent ($HOME).

To replay  recordings from a given directory  use sudosh-replay with the "-d logdir" option.

I am logged on as root.

The tree for sudosh logs: /home/users/sudoshlogs/$servername (it's a nas share)

The "baja10" dir has files for all users that use sudosh on that server., i.e.

./baja10/user1-user1-script-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX
./baja10/user1-user1-time-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX
./baja10/user1-user1-input-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX

When I run the command "sudosh-replay -d baja10" from /home/users/sudoshlogs dir, I get the following output

Date                Duration From         To           ID
====                ======== ====         ==           ==
09/27/2011 18:15:43 36s      rbhatia      rbhatia      rbhatia-rbhatia-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX

Usage: sudosh-replay ID [MULTIPLIER] [MAXWAIT]
See 'sudosh-replay -h' for more help.
Example: sudosh-replay rbhatia-rbhatia-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX 1 2

The output of the "sudosh-replay -d baja10" returns
rbhatia-rbhatia-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX

but I don't see that file in the baja10 dir. Instead what I see are 3 files

rbhatia-rbhatia-time-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX
rbhatia-rbhatia-input-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX
rbhatia-rbhatia-script-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX

So how do I run the command in the example above
Example: sudosh-replay rbhatia-rbhatia-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX 1 2

if I can't find the argument "rbhatia-rbhatia-1317161743-uzzVVVV1111XXXXX 1 2"

What you see with "sudosh-replay -d ..." is the ID of the session, not a filename.

filenames are composed of the ID and an inserted part "time"/"input"/"script"

Simply run the command suggested by sudosh-replay.

... where is the "-d" option?

You need it for listing as well as for replaying:

sudosh-replay -d baja10 akohojka-akohojka...... 1 2
