I know this question may seem vague, however I'm currently unaware of any extensions for Magento 2.1+ that allows the administrator of a website to see what/if there are any currently connected users to your site.

I'm asking because, I periodically need to do upgrades and re-compilation/etc, and I obviously try and wait until there is little/no traffic on the site for a few minutes. However, I have noticed that the customers > whos online is extremely limited on what you can see in M2.

Any suggestions/links to extensions that offer this type of visibility, is greatly appreciated.

You could look into using Google Analytics for this functionality. Google Analytics has a real-time view where you can see all current users and the pages they are viewing.

  1. Register for an Analytics account
  2. Configure your Magento instance to use your new account
