How to track user activity using ASPSESSIONID

Joe
Hi,

We have a secured website and a user needs to create an account before they
can log in. After they login a session cookie
(ASPSESSIONIDQABTBBAB=MOPPDDHDOKBJCJFOINAHCJKD) is created to identify the
user. We have this session cookie in the IIS 6 log file and I would like to
know of any software that we can use them for tracking user activity other
than WebTrends.

Thanks

Joe

Long term, you'll probably want to wrap up your own
solution for this. My guess is that you'll want to join
this with other tables in your database for various reports.
Performing joins on your IIS log table is going to become
problematic over the longer term.

If you want to implement this without adjusting your
existing code, just write a little http handler for it.
