Happy Friday Everyone
I am working on some things today. I was thinking it would be good to kill all the stale connections that are over a certain age. I am not sure how to go about this however. I used to have some code that would do this, but I cannot find it. Can anyone assist me in finding the code to perform this task?

Thank you in advance for all your assistance, suggestions and comments

Why?

What problems are they causing?
Do you know what they were doing?
Do you know if the applications can handle a terminated connection?

Hey Gila
The application is not closing them. I need to kill them if they are a couple days old. Also, there are some users that connect using SSMS that leave it open after not logging out correctly.

Thanks
Andrew

Why? What problem are they causing? What effect will it have on the app if you do?

It will not affect the app at all.

There are some users that connect using SSMS that leave it open after not logging out of the remote session correctly. That is the biggest thing I want to kill

Why do you want to kill those? Why bother?
