How can we find the maximum number of staff who have been actively using the GUI simultaneously during the past x weeks?
There are various system monitors which can no doubt be configured to provide this information, but aside from that....
The following grep in the $LOGDIR directory will read the pc_server logs, showing the the number of simultaneous users, the next highest number, etc.:
> grep 'Active GUI users' pc_server*log* | cut -d: -f 3 | sort -nru | head
As noted in Article 000037619 (" License limit exceeded or System is overloaded **MASTER RECORD**") pc_server sessions remain active for 10 minutes after the time of the user last hit Enter; Web sessions, for 2 minutes. (This is hard-coded in the programs.)
See also, Article 000033692 (" Measuring maximum # active Web OPAC (or GUI) users ").
