Dashboard information



  • Does anyone know where the "Connections" number comes from? I have 75 4gl clients and 77 remote and yet my connections shows 116.

    Also...how can I tell who and where a user is logged on from a Remote connection?

    It all comes from the _connect VST.

    The value "connections" on the dashboard screen is calculated as:

    for each dictdb._Connect no-lock where _Connect-usr <> ?:
        tt_Dashboard.con_total  = tt_Dashboard.con_total  + 1.
    end.
    

    So you can think of it as "total active connections".

    Generally speaking you will find many cases where "adding up the numbers" will not equal 100% (or the equivalent) because many connection types will be double counted.

    For instance, a remote connection could be either a 4gl connection or a SQL connection.

    To explain apparent discrepancies in the numbers I would need to see all of them.

    The "W" (upper case) command will bring up a list of users and show the server IP address.

    If you need a specific user use the "#" command, set the usr# and then use the "U" command to look at that user's details.
