A few weeks back, Patrick sent me an email showing a script he used to track what users had logged on to a machine. In his email he mentioned something:
“.. If I am having a problem with a specific person I use “Activity Monitor” and log everything on that machine..”
Thanks for the tip Patrick, really appreciate it.
This is an open source utility that will track what applications are being used, and when.
It is a small program that sits on the computer you want to watch. When you want to view the recorded activity, you go to a website (running on that computer) that gives you all the stats.
You can see a percentage of what applications were being used:
You can track individual processes…very nice if you are looking for something specific:
And a really nice feature is the “Time Sheet” section. It breaks down the activity of the user down to the minute…so you can see exactly what websites and programs they have been using all day:
