I don't know if there is a method to tracke active sessions on the server,
other than the method I suggest.  The problem I mention is that when a user
is in your web site (having logged in) but does not log-out.  That is, the
user simply types in another web-site outside of your site or selects a new
web-site from the Favorites or Bookmarks list in the browser.  Your app
would not know that the user left.

Somebody else previously suggested tracking the last time a user  changed
pages within your web-site; if a uses hasn't changed pages within the last
10 minutes, then assume the user has left your web-site and decrease the
number of users by 1.

Ok, but i'm using sessions. My users log in the system, there is no
anonymous navigation. So i was thinking something about tracking the number
of active sessions. I don't know how to do that. ┐Any ideas?.
Thanks
