Have you tried the access log monitor already? The greatest advantage of moving from a desktop workstation terminal emulation client solution to a server/browser-based client structure is the centralized management.
All the features, from the creation of macros to the keyboard configuration, can be managed from a single point. Plus, when you have to deal with a large deployment or several user profiles it is always useful to have more insight into your users’ activity.
With z/Scope you can now answer questions like:
- How many users are logged in right now?
- What was last’s month user activity?
By setting up the z/Scope Anywhere analytics you can have the answer to these and other questions.
z/Scope’s analytics will report your users’ source IP, Browser ID, connection duration, and destination host.
Last but not the least, you can view and manage your live connections.
In order to set up the Analytics feature for z/Scope Anywhere you will need:
- SQL Server 2012 or newer.
- The “sa” (system administrator) user must be enabled.
- A new SQL database ready to store these records.
In the z/Scope Anywhere Server Manager, click on the Server Settings button.
In the “Permissions” tab, click on the “Add” button, and select the user you want to have access to Analytics. After you select the user, check the “User can manage connections” checkbox, and click on “Configure Analytics”.
2) Click on “Data Link Properties”.
3) Select “Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server” (or whatever default provider you have) and press “Next”.
4) Select the Server name where SQL Server is installed, then select “Use a specific username and password”. Enter the credentials for the “sa” user and select the database you created for z/Scope Anywhere.
5) Navigate to the “All” tab, and change the “Persist Security Info” value from “False” to “True”.
6) Go back to the “Advanced” tab, click on “Test Connection”. This window should pop up:
7) Click on “OK”, and “Apply”. And that’s it!
To verify that everything has been properly configured, navigate to the z/Scope Anywhere landing page, and sign in using the designated user. You should see the “Analytics” icon listed, as shown below:
Clicking on it will give you access to the Analytics menu, where you can find all the information regarding user login, active or past sessions and connections, and the different browsers used by your users.
