      Hi,

      If you want to see no. of logged on users on a particular DC, you can of course search the event viewer for the logon events.
      You can use scripts for such a thing. You may also have a look at LimitLogin even if you don't want to limit logins.
      There's no direct way to get that info, and the clients do NOT maintain a
      constant and dynamic connection to a DC. The client is authenticated to a
      given DC, receives the ticket and that's it.
      One more thing you can do, session query on a server (such as a DC). This does not mean the corresponding user authenticated to the DC, only that they have a session (maybe they opened a file). Also, sessions can seem to START and END as sessions time out, but this is the best you can do.
      Furthermore, you can refer to the article for AD information:
