Chapter 4 Monitoring the Calendar Server

This chapter describes how to monitor Calendar Server activity. It provides examples that show how to obtain server statistics using the most common options for the cssession, csstats, and cstool command line utilities. For complete details on all the available options, see Appendix A, "Command Line Utilities."

Managing User Sessions
Use the cssession utility's list command to show the status (enabled, disabled, logged-in, logged-out) of all Calendar Server users or a specified user.

Note. You can run cssession on the local machine where your Calendar Server is installed or from a remote machine.

For example, to show the status of all users, enter the following command o the command line:

cssession list

To show the status of a specified user such as JSmith, enter the following command:

cssession list JSmith

Logging Out a User
Use the cssesion utility's logout command to log out a specified user. For example, to log out JSmith who is logged in to the Calendar Server, enter the following command:

cssession logout JSmith

Listing Counter Statistics
The csstats utility displays statistical information obtained from counter objects which are defined in the calendar configuration (*.conf) files. Counter objects (such as httpstat, authstat, wcapstat, or dbstat) show information about the Calendar Server such as the:

For detailed information on how to interpret Calendar Server counter statistics see, Counters.

To view statistical information, use the csstats utility's list command. For example:

To display basic information about the counter objects and the types available, enter the following command:

csstats list

To list statistics specifically about the httpstat counter object, enter:

csstats list http

To list statistics continuously every 10 seconds about the wcapstat counter object, enter:

csstats -i -1 -s 10 list wcap

Pinging the Calendar Server

Note. The Calendar Server must be running in order to run cstool.

Refreshing the Calendar Server Configuration
Use cstool utility's refresh command to force the Calendar Server to refresh its configuration. For example, to command the Calendar Server installed on calserver (the machine's host name) to refresh it's configuration, enter the following command:

cstool refresh calserver

Note. The Calendar Server must be running in order to run cstool.
