Would you like to know who is using SAS on your Unix, Linux, or Windows servers and what products they are using? Six years ago, frustrated with the lack of an institutionalized methodology, I created my own by hijacking the SAS RTRACE Facility. We have been running it at Westat for about six years now and love the unique insights it provides into SAS usage in our organization.

You can read all about it in my original, groundbreaking SUGI 29 paper Measuring SAS® Software Usage On Shared Servers With the RTRACE Facility as well as in Macro Maven Ron Fehd's innovative follow-up paper Modifying The LogParse PassInfo Macro. Both of these papers provide examples of how some of us have approached this issue.
