Applies To

  • ERP System: Oracle, SAP
  • MarkView Version: All Versions


In certain situations customers may wish to know how many concurrent users are using the MarkView Viewers. Note: This Article only measures use of the MarkView Viewers ( MarkView Enterprise Edition and MarkView Express as well as the new Viewer introduced in MarkView 7.0 . It does not measure use of any other MarkView components.)

Concurrent Usage Scripts

  • MarkView 6.x and earlier
    • concurrent-usage.sql
  • MarkView 7.0 and higher (Note this script is currently Oracle ERP Specific)
    • concurrent-usage-mv7.sql

Running the Script

  • The tool is packaged as a script that is intended to be run within Oracle SQL*Plus. It can be invoked from the command line as:
    • sqlplus USER/PWD@prod-env @concurrent-usage.sql
      • The USER and PWD connection credentials should be to the MarkView database schema. This is often called 'markview'.
      • You will then be prompted for the start and end dates of the window to report on:
        • Reporting Period Start (DD-MON-YYYY): 01-FEB-2007
        • Reporting Period End (DD-MON-YYYY): 14-FEB-2007
    • The reported results will include usage across the specified days, inclusive (e.g., in this example, usage on Feb. 1 and 14 will be included in the report, along with all days in between).
    • The tool will take approximately 1-2 minutes to run for each day in the reporting period. That is, this example could take 15-30 minutes.

Reading the Script Output:

The tool will not produce any output while it is running, until it has completely calculated it's results, at which point it will print out a report in the following form:
