Socket closed by client

This is typically an indication that the user closed their browser.

It is harmless.

Why doesn't it have a user name included?

The Server Reference Manual states that there are a number of reason for session termination:

   “Socket closed” = Client-induced termination

   “LRU” = Terminated as Least Recently Used in favor of new user

   “Shutdown” = Server-induced termination for other reasons

But that this is not a complete list, as the exit value in some cases comes from the operating system.

Other common Exit Reasons are:

Session expired after idle timeSession Idle Time exceeded the parameters set for the Document / Server
Killed because Named User Cal was needed from another clientWhere the User is using two different machines / browsers to view the same document this "kills the session" to use for the other machine.
