"Who's Online" module in "http://www.asp.net/community/" page is now showing "931 members and 0 guests are currently online "
But "http://forums.asp.net/user/ViewOnline.aspx" page showing "201 members online " and 4000 geusts .
So I'm wondering how the community page shows "931 members online " ? Is those online users the same from Forums ?
Or is this numer includes users from another applications ? like blogs ? ...

Very perceptive of you. The number of users being reported at "http://www.asp.net/community/" represents the users across forums, weblogs, www.asp.net, and wiki. We recently updated that page to more accurately reflect the number of users across the site.
It's still constantly a moving target, with the web being ephemeral the way it is, and with multiple web servers in the farm, and caching, and whatnot. But the feeling is hopefully one of "we are not alone". :-)

Thanks for reply ,
Yes There is many challenges when collecting the data from many applications especially when there are running in webfarm .
But the current values is far away from the actual number , if you looked now at the community page , the module is showing "17 members and 542 guests" while the The Online users on the Forums Page ("http://forums.asp.net/user/ViewOnline.aspx") showing "54
members and 2450 guests "
So we have a very inconsistent results here .

One more note ,
By chance , I noticed that the module is showing my user twice in the list , I mean in this page (http://www.asp.net/Community/WhosOnline/)
see this image which is taken at that moment ,
I also noticed that there is Last Update column , did you added that column recently ? I think its important for filtering the online users correctly , because yesterday the module was showing a users where there Last Update column showing " 12 hours ago"
, so i think that's the problem , the module shouldn't show the users that is not updated in the last 15 minutes ( or what ever a short time ).
