So, how does it work?
After you have installed the server component of the application to a windows 2000 or later
Active Directory Domain member server, you can install the client part on any number of
computers in your Active Directory via a normal group policy. You can create this policy via the
Once your server and policy are created, which will only take you minutes, the following events
are logged (sent by your computers to the logon analyzer server):
-- Wake Ups
-- Boot Times
-- Shutdown Times
-- Forced Logoffs
-- Forced Shutdowns
-- Forced Restarts
-- Sent Messages
Let’s say you wait a month, and want to get information about the occupancy of your
computers over the past month. The data is present on the logon analyzer server. You can
now create a report:
1. You can either create a report from the console interface by clicking on ‘Reports’ and
selecting a time period and your computers,
2. or you can open your active directory from the console by clicking on ‘Active
Directory’, select the computers, right click and select ‘Calculate Occupancy’,
3. or you can open your active directory from the console by clicking on ‘Active
Directory’, select your users, right click and select ‘Calculate Occupancy’.
The report will show you the occupancy per hour of the day, or per day over the period of
choice. You can also request logon data per computer or user, or any subset of computers or
users. You can also see the free capacity at any point in time during the period of choice.
If you create a map of your organization (with buildings, floors, rooms, workplaces, computers,
access points and snapshots), you can also generate a report of a building, floor or room
simply by right clicking it and selecting ‘Calculate Occupancy’.
