Reviewing user sessions

Reviewing user sessions

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance and the Remote Site Appliance keep track of your user sessions. You can review a list of the most recent sessions, or see all sessions for a specific appliance.

To allow the appliance to display the location associated with the logged-in user's public IP address, you must install a location database. See Install and configure the location database.

You can see all of your user sessions on the Recent Sessions page. For a quick list of the latest sessions, use the My Recent Sessions pane. See View a list of user sessions.

Install and configure the location database

Install and configure the location database

User session details include the IP address of the currently logged-in user. This information is displayed on the Recent Sessions page. For public IP addresses you can also display the geographical location associated with a specific IP address, however this requires a location database to be installed on the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance and each Remote Site Appliance. You can install the MaxMind Geolocation database free of charge and display user locations for any public IP address.

MaxMind offers country and city databases. A city database is typically larger in size and takes longer to install. A country database provides only the name of the country associated with each public IP address, while a city database allows the appliance to display the city, state (if applicable), and the country.

You can periodically refresh the location database by installing an updated version. While it is possible to install multiple databases over time, the most recently installed database overwrites the contents of the previous version. For example, if a country database is already installed, and you install a city database on the appliance, the Location column on the Recent Sessions page reflects the information from the newly installed city database.

For complete information about MaxMind Geolocation databases, visit https://www.maxmind.com/.
