Hi Experts,

I am looking at putting some applications on a Cloud based Windows Server 2008 (or later) system.

I want to be able to track times that users are logged in for, and how much time they have each application open for.

Can anyone recommend third party applications that can report/summarize usage details from Windows Event logs?

Regards,
Leigh

We use Splunk for log viewing. This works cross platform (UNIX/Wintel) and we have this configured in AWS.

I've not really used the reporting side of it, but I had a quick look and some basic reports have been setup so some functionality is there.
