Hi,

Just for info, you have another way to see all session infomation using:

tmsh show apm access-info all-properties

Display all access-info? (y/n) y

Total records returned: 762

apm access-info dsds92sd {
    access-profile ltm_apm
    client-ip 1.1.1.1
    egress-compressed 0
    egress-raw 0
    expiration-time 2018-10-17 09:33:17
    ingress-compressed 0
    ingress-raw 0
    logon-user youssef
    partition Common
    profile-access-type all
    rx-bytes 5919
    rx-packets 0
    start-time 2018-10-17 09:18:08
    status established
    tmm 2
    tx-bytes 4385
    tx-packets 0
    virtual-server /Common/vs-app
}

You can also see all info regarding session using 'sessiondump --allkeys'. For more info see:

https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/products/big-ip_apm/manuals/product/apm-visual-policy-editor-12-0-0/6.html

But in both case you can see just active session info withtout session duration... but it can help

Hi,

You can find this information in APM Logs.

In Report:

  • Access ›› Overview : Active Reports
  • Select session wanted regarding user:

You have this information:

2018-10-17 10:19:54
/Common/ap-application:Common:451dffds: Following rule 'Out' from item 'XXXX' to ending 'Allow'

2018-10-17 10:35:46
/Common/ap-application:Common:451dffds: Session deleted due to user inactivity.

With this information you can estimate session duration.

hope it will help you.

regards
