I have a 3 server NLB terminal server cluster, and I have been told that I need to keep statistics on users connections.  namely, login, logout, and idle time.

Other than the paid apps out there, is there anything that can allow me to pull this info?  I cant find anything remotely easy that will save the information for me, or allow me to get it.

I think you're struggling to be honest. I am not aware of anything available for free that can go into the level of granularity you're after.

The lowest-cost option may be Terminal Services Log - www.terminalserviceslog.com - but the basic product comes in at US$299 per server.

I don't know if ObservIT express (free on the following link) http://www.observeit-sys.com/Products/Versions?OITRef=Petri can do what you're after, as it's made more for recording sessions and storing in a DB than reporting, but it does include some reports.
