it really depends on how your client/server are implemented, if you have to make a call to the database to retrieve some value for the users anyways, another simple database field with a status integer should do the trick just fine, but a little more specifically, 0=online, 1=away, otherwise yes, a timestamp of the last action so you can calculate a timeout for the user being 'offline'
