Subj:   Re: Architechtural question--How to account for application usage?
From:   David Wellman


Not simple. As you're talking about DSN's I'm assuming that the applications are going through ODBC. Whether or not this really works depends I think on how much control you have over the application code.

If the application is bought in (e.g. Business Objects) and the user gets presented with an Teradata/ODBC logon screen then what's to stop them using the wrong AccountName? Probably nothing, which means that you may not be able to rely on the figures.

If the application is home-grown then you can (presumably) get the code altered to force the correct AccountName based on the application. This will give you the breakdown that you're after and is probably the simplest way.
