Returns information about the Geodatabase user.
The users name and its corresponding sessionID can used to disconnect the particular user with the IDatabaseConnectionInfo3.DisconnectUser method.

ClientName returns the name of the computer that is connected to the workspace.
ConnectionTime returns the time the connection was made to the workspace in database time.
IsDirectConnection is used to determine the style of connection. Returning True would indicate that the load was on the client side (Direct Connection) while returning False would indicate that the load was on the server side (Application Connection)
IsOwnConnection indicates if the IUserInfo references the connection made by the user.

SessionID returns the identifier of the connection. The sessionID can be used by a Geodatabase administrator with IDatabaseConnectionInfo3 to disconnect the associated connection.
