How can I monitor the open ArcSDE database connections without
sdemon? I need to see at any time how many sessions are consumed from my app and if they are related to ArcGIS. I use Oracle 10.2.
Esri deprecated use of the ArcSDE application server (
gsrvr processes) in favor of exclusive Direct Connect connections at 10.2 (there are no 10.3 application server binaries). ArcGIS 10.1 and 10.2 added a number of tools to replace the deprecated tools like
sdemon, and 10.3 added more. The Do This, Not That! – Alternatives to using SDE command line tools blog post presents a number of options for using Desktop and/or Python to perform tasks which previously involved command-line tools, including this capability for Desktop and the ListUsers arcpy request, both introduced at ArcGIS 10.1.
