Tips to check VCSA sessions.

Below grep NumSessions shows the currently active sessions on the vpxd profiler. The longer query showing HttpSessionObject is checking for all HTTP sessions that were created over a certain period of time.

The HttpSessionObject notes a unique session at a point in time in the log. We filer on this because there are many different objects noted in the profiler log that don’t relate to HTTP sessions.

Login in to SSH – cd \var\log\vmware\vpxd\

grep NumSessions vpxd-profiler*.log | less

grep ClientIP vpxd-profiler*.log | grep HttpSessionObject | grep -v com.vmware | grep -v "''" | cut -d "'" -f 3-6 | sort | uniq --count | sort -nr | less
