Find out # of concurrent users of a sql 2005 database.

is there a way to find out the number of concurrent users of a sql 2005 database?  If yes, would you instruct how?

We would also want to know the number of users connect to a specific database at a specific date and time.  Is it possible?

It really depends on your security strategy and connection pooling.  It is very straightforward to map a specific login to a specific database.  Transactions/sec and Batch Requests per sec are usually more used to evaluate database server load.

If you are using any type of connection pooling that may be difficult to get an accurate number using SQL Server.
