Free software metering?

Is there any way to tell what applications someone is using on virtual desktops?  A free tool or a powershell script?

We've been doing VDI in one form or another for about 12 years now.  Mostly for off shore consultants and a few very specific use cases. 12 years ago it was to allow people outside of the company to use a specific application in a more secure manner.  We'v pretty much given a virtual desktop to anyone that requests one since then.  We have now virtualized the original application in the cloud. I suspect that 80% of our VMs are still being used for this one specific app.  If that is the case, i don't want to give them a whole VM.  It's maybe 100 VMs.

Wow, great tool. It looks like it's only available in 7.2 though.  I'm trying to find out what our current users are using so we can upgrade to 7.2
