In the admin console Activity > Clients screen and in the TopCallStats log file, I see several entries with a "client name" in curly braces, a number with a slash and a 1.
What are these?
Probably PSoS calls IIRC
Hmm, I saw PSOS user as
scriptName - accountName number
Out of topic, but I found "user detail" has empty value for "language" on PSOS client, interesting.
I've also those curly brackets in clients statistics, and this is is definitely not PSOS, since I don't use it.
So what is it ?
Disconnected clients, AFAIK.
After spending some time investigating, I don't have any firm answers, but it seems like it can be caused by any of several things, including PSoS, scheduled scripts, disconnected clients, and abandoned WebDirect sessions.
+1 for something like disconnected clients.
When I have seen this, it has oftentimes accompanied clients disconnecting, and not always gracefully. Sometimes they go away fairly quickly, and that has never seemed to be a problem. On the few times that I've seen them stick around , it's usually spelled trouble -- not necessarily the source of trouble, but rather a symptom that all was not well with the server in question. Your mileage may vary.
Well I know for sure that they were disconnected, and minutes later the server hanged and had to be restarted.
It was a defective switch, but strangely every time it was starting with an Adjust Reference Count on a Container field.
Here an example:
We call them "ghost sessions," dropped connections (server-executed or otherwise) that won't go away until the server is restarted. On the Statistics graph this session causes a tell-tale gap between elapsed time and wait time, which means (I hope) that other users' performance is not affected. Still, we tend to reboot at our earliest convenience.
