Sessions provides a view of the current sessions (also known as connections)

Each row represents a single a network session/and its properties.

As Untangle and all the apps learn more about a session, many will "attach" data to the session so it is globally visible and accessible via other apps. The Sessions view provides a view into everything that is known about a session.

The Sessions view provides a real-time view into whats going on in the network, and can also provide a great debugging tool to verify that sessions are being processed by the correct policies and handled correctly.
