I have done something similar with perl scripts to display via the webserver's cgi-bin interface. Can provide examples.

I have also implemented a "maximum allowed sessions" device in the workspace server startup scripts that keeps users from using more than 3 workspace server sessions concurrently.

This is definitely useful. My need is slightly different : when a pooling limit cannot/might not be set to allow a maximum number of sessions, which means when we use a standard workspace server (unlimited number of sessions/resources ) then I suggest to responsibilize the user themselves (instead of the IT ... or the Admin ! ). With great power comes great responsibility as they say on Linux when it comes to impersonate root privileges. The underlying assumption is that, with this extra awareness, the users can knowinglinly re-distribute their work load by setting up their priorities in a cooperative mindset, instead of using unrestricted resources blindly (and suboptimally, perhaps).
