So you're running the Shibboleth Identity Provider software on one
server, and EZproxy as SAML Service Provider on another server, right?

What exactly do you mean with "the session id"? The Shibboleth IDP
will not send a session id to the EZproxy SAML SP, though it may
itself log a session id locally.
If EZproxy itself has a session id and you want to log it then that's
a question for the EZproxy documntation or OCLC support.

So you already have all the information available at your EZproxy
side? Or are you asking about the Shibboleth IDP that should send some
more data/attributes to the EZproxy?

How to log stuff with the EZproxy software sounds like a question
about EZproxy, not Shibboleth.
