How to audit Citrix server use?

Hello Experts - I have a Citrix XenApp 6.5 server which does not see much use which I'd like to get detailed information on.  I suspect only a few people use it and those are likely just checking email and doing other small tasks.  What would be the best way to find out who is using it, how frequently, and what they are doing on it?

I believe Citrix Edgesight can provide very similar information to what you're looking for. Also Edgesight can be used to troubleshoot performance issues.

Edgesight is normally included by default with Citrix environments licensed for Xenapp Enterprise.

Here are the licensing requirements: http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX126059

That article seems to reference 4.5 and 5, I'm on 6.5.  Do all the same rules apply?  I don't know anything about edgesite, is it an application that needs to be installed or something that I can run from within one of the management consoles?

It should still apply, as listed here: http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/edgesight54/es-new-features-54.html

The information you require can be found using the reports within Edgesight specifically one called the User summary report. Once you type their user id or group name and provide their start and end date, it gives you all details like logon and log-off, server details etc.

You need platinum licenses for advanced reports and real-time reports. Edgesight still works with Enterprise licenses with limited functionality and reports. However for user log-off and login, even enterprise license can do.
