Number of active VPN sessions
Your workforce is fully remote. To ensure network security, you want to report on how many active VPN sessions there are on your network at certain times of the day.
VPN data, normalized to the Network Sessions data Common Information Model (CIM). For information on installing and using the CIM, see the Common Information Model documentation.
Run the following search. You can optimize it by specifying a time range.
| tstats count(All_Sessions.user) FROM datamodel=Network_Sessions WHERE `rw_vpn_indexes` nodename=All_Sessions.VPN
The table provides an explanation of what each part of this search achieves. You can adjust this query based on the specifics of your environment.
|| tstats count(All_Sessions.user) FROM datamodel=Network_Sessions WHERE `rw_vpn_indexes` nodename=All_Sessions.VPN||
Search the All_sessions data set for users in a VPN network session event.
This search returns a simple count of all active VPN sessions during the time you specify. Correlate this information with the results of other searches to determine what is normal or anomalous activity on your network.
