Tracking application change in a session

Does anyone know if it's somehow possible to track application changes in a session?

Let's say an application in a session first is identified as web-browsing, then facebook, and finally facebook-chat. Maybe not a realistic example, but you get the point :smileyhappy:

Is there any way I can see that in the traffic logs, or through any other cli commands?

Hi...The app change occurs during an active session so you cannot view it in the traffic log.  Traffic log is for session start and/or session end only.  You can use the session browser in the web GUI or via the CLI using command 'show session id <value>' to view the active session of interest.  You simply refresh the command to get update to see if the application changes.  Thanks.

Thanks for your answer!

So there is no way to get historical data on this? To somehow view which application changes a closed session has gone through?

To watch how an app can change, you can initiate the app and view its session(s) info while it is active.  Once the session ends, we will create only 1 log entry & log the app for the session.

You could turn on logging at start and end of session.  Then the traffic log will create 1 log at the start with the start app, and 1 log at the end with the ending app.  Thanks.
