What I do to monitor ongoing license usage is run a program via ON.ENTRY that checks the current user count total and writes it to a log record for today's date if it's greater than the current entry. That gives me a high water mark for each day. A program runs during nightly batch processing that sends an email alert if the high water mark is within 5 seats of our total licenses.

I used the code you shared and some of my own to show the Users, RPC connections and the sum. This will give me a tool to watch the number of connections and compare to the occurrences of problems. Naturally, since it is late on Friday afternoon, things are quieting down.
