Exchange 2010 Logon Statistics

Can someone please explain why when I run; Get-LogonStatistics -identity "myusername"
 
It lists about 50+ entries? The same applies for a lot of other users too.
 
Thank you.

use this cmdlet to see what the Client, Servername and the application

Get-LogonStatistics <username> | select Username, ServerName, ClientName, ApplicationId | ft -AutoSize

Typically outlook will connect to a CAS user using MSExchangeRPC.  If you have multiple mailboxes, public folder or calendars open, then additional connections will be made.

OCS/Lync also shows in the connections, as will any other application that uses your outlook to read or do something with Exchange.

To see more information about the connections check out: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123650(v=EXCHG.65).aspx

The number of connections are controlled by throttling polices.  Check out:

Hi sushil84
 
Yes I know what the command is. But my question is to why a large number of users are displaying to have 50 connections each.

When user using the mobile devices , such as iphone, ipad and other third party devices to sync with exchange, the devices always create many connection with exchange server.

That is correct but users do not have 50 mobile devices connecting to Exchange. Why aren't the old connections dropped?

Get-LogonStatistics -identity "myusername"

This could give many results if users use Handheld device or even Add-ons in Outlook create multiple connections with the Exchange server.

If users have 3rd party search in Add-on in Outlook it could create multiple connections.

That is correct too but I think you're missing the point.
 
Why would I for example have 50 connections to Exchange? I do not have 50 devices connecting to Exchange. How long does it take in order for the old connections to drop / disappear?

Why would I for example have 50 connections to Exchange? - 50 connections do not mean 50 devices ... with Outlook only i can have multiple connections ... Connections drop from Outlook or device not sure how to configure that on server.

Will check if i can find something for connection dropping or changing that setting.
