Ask a question

Is there a way to get a list of hostnames or IP addresses of client hosts from where the Eclipse client access the RTC ?

 As per post 139622 answer by Alex Fitzpatrick:
"You can get a list connections grouped by client version, but user identity is not tracked"

Could we read that "connections" are either hostnames or IP addresses of hosts tied to the tracked version of the Eclipse clients accessing the RTC server ?

If so How do we get hold of these lists of hotsnames or IP addresses tied to each Eclipse client version ?

Or would there be detailed license report, to be had, with type of license, user holding the license, holding time, Eclipse client version, client host name or IP address ?

You could set up an apache reverse proxy server and get the IP address and User-agent (Java/1.6.0)
You could then enable WAS Security Audit Logs and capture login events with the username and IP address.
You would then need to write a script which would analyze the WAS security audit logs to build a list of username to ip addresses mappings, and then use that information while scanning the apache log.

Possible - yes. Easy - not really.

yes, after all that you have username to ip address.. but not the jazz client software version. which is the one thing we wanted...

user -> version

Thx Ben,

Forgot to tell:

  • We are currently on 4.0.6, ironically needing the infos for the upgrade to 5.0.2 with reverse proxy which we don't have now.
  • We are on Tomcat, an upgrade to WAS is a maybe in the far future.
