The definition of concurrent users can sometimes differ between people. I have the following dashboard I use that I built based on information I sourced from Mark Jackson blog Tableau Zen: Custom Tableau Server Admin Views
I'm tracking no of events and no of distinct users in 15 min intervals throughout the course of 24 hrs. It'll take me a bit of work to reproduce this into a packaged workbook as the data source I use is a published server data source, and you'll want the postgres query.
Mark's blog does reference a packaged workbook though, so you may be able to get going by having a look at that and pointing it to your own postgres database.

I've asked various Tableau people what their definition of "concurrent users" is and have never been given a straight answer
Attached is a workbook that has a couple of different ways to measure concurrent users so play with it. This is not my workbook, I got it from someone else. Make sure you Edit Connections so you can connect to your Tableau Server.
Thanks for your response over my query . I checked Mark's & Toby twb files and edited connection to my postgres server everything looked great except its showing a day ahead data , so today is 27th Feb 2017 however concurrent user dashboard showing concurrent users of 28th Feb 2017.
Formula on column shelf is -DATETRUNC('day', [created_at (EST)])
Thanks for any help that can be provided here.

The Tableau Server uses GMT (well, officially UTC, kinda the same difference) so make sure you are adjusting your date/time stamp from your Tableau Server to match your time zone. PITA date/time implementation if you ask me, I'd rather have the Server set to the time zone the Tableau Admin chooses.
