Desktop Usage Stats

I’ve completely re-written my application to gather more data on usage. Now I have access to real-time data on which apps users are running along with CPU utilization. Kind of interesting to see the numbers emerging from the data.

As an example, top apps are Internet Explorer, Word, Firefox then trailing quite a bit behind Excel (Access was 6th, Visual Studio was 9th). One of the surprising things that came up is idle time. Seeing scrnsave.scr show up in the list of applications started me looking at how often the machines are sitting ‘idle’ as evidenced by scrnsave.scr showing up in the application list. A quick bit of ts-sql showed that for about 11% of the logged-in time, scrnsave.scr was active. I need to let the new version run a bit longer to get a better idea what the average CPU utilization is.
