Discussion board where members learn more about Qlik Sense Installation, Deployment and Management.
Is there a way to find out how a user had a session? E.g. Did they access via Chrome, Firefox, IE, Qlik Sense Desktop etc?
Does this Support article help: https://support.qlik.com/articles/000049264 ?
What exactly does HubService record? It doesn't seem easy to identify which session each row is relating to when trying to analyse Method 2.
Method 2, using the Qlik Sense HubService logs
A much more lighter-weight approach than method 1 would be to parse the HubService logs in C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\HubService. No additional settings are required.

Strictly speaking it's measuring slightly different things. The Hub Service records calls against the Endpoints that it surfaces.
When browsing the Hub with a Developer Console open (I am using Chrome):
We see a list of calls to a path that includes /api/v1...
This is the Hub Service.
The Proxy, on the other hand, is logging based on consuming a ticket.
Practically, the Hub Service will likely miss:
Otherwise it's a good approximation of the Proxy logging without the overhead.
