My company has been having ongoing problems with the Gateway since its initial installation over a year and a half ago. We recently rebuilt the gateway for the 3rd time and moved it to a VM server. Since this latest rebuild, we wanted to be able to validate the actual number of devices that are using the gateway and which devices are connecting.
Looking through the console and gateway, I am unable to find a simple way of validating the total % of the population is connecting via the gateway, as opposed to via VPN, dial-up, or directly via the LAN.
Has anyone devised a way to monitor and report on gateway usage? I noticed that the Gateway configuration interface has information under the Manage Certificates option that lists computer names, session counts and last session time, but I haven't found information that explains what these actually indicate. Is session count the number of times a device has connected via the gateway? Does last session indicate that the device connected via the gateway externally, or could the connection have been within the LAN as well?
Also, support pointed out that there is a log file on each computer that records connection and will list the gateway IP if it connects via the gateway. Anyone tried to parse this log file and get a report that way?
We're running LD 8.7 SP5 and whatever the latest build of the gateway is.
Thanks for the assist.
