Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2008-08-22 13:51:34 CEST
Currently, the tladm "Load" page displays the number of unique users running processes on the system. This includes non-TL users as well. Some customers finds this confusing. See issue6518. We could consider changing tladm to display TL users, or perhaps both TL and other users.
Comment 1 Morgan Eklöf cendio 2011-11-14 16:51:46 CET
This column should propably show something along the lines of 

w | cut -f 1 -d " " | sort | uniq

, but in any case this should be done in VSM server. tlwebadm does no post-processing of this data after the remote call.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2011-11-15 10:43:29 CET
We've decided to implement this according to the previous comment.
Comment 3 Torkil Svensgaard 2017-01-19 10:13:10 CET
I presume this hasn't been implemented yet as 4.7.0 still shows a "Numbers of users" slightly higher than the number of TL sessions?
Comment 4 Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-01-19 10:56:34 CET
Right. As long as the bug status isn't CLOSED then there is still work to be done.
Comment 5 Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-02-14 10:47:17 CET
It's not just a display issue but an underlying issue in the load balancer. We're really interested in "real" users and not just unique uids. So fixing the measurement should fix both the load calculation and the presentation.
