We are currently investigating Ongoing user Logon Performance issues accross our customers network of about 2000 users.

We have been asked to mesure users logon speeds. Currently this has involved sitting with the user with a StopWatch, and timing from when they enter their credentials to when their machine is useable.

I am looking to produce a script to automate this, and I have been looking writing a script to read the users logon time from the Event Log, and measure that against the time I run a program within the Windows Startup Folder.

However this method is not ideal as I need to try to produce somthing which is simple to use.

This one is quite Tricky, however I would be keen to know if anyone else has had this problem before, and attempted to via VB or KIX provide accurate measurement of logon times?

You can use the @ticks macro in kix to time stamp a start and stop.

$start = cdbl(@ticks)

for $i  = 1 to 5
	sleep 1
	sleep 0.001
next
	

$end = cdbl(@ticks)

? "the entire process took, " ($end - $start)/1000 " seconds"
