NAME

rup - Show host status of remote machines (RPC version)  

SYNOPSIS

rup [-hlt]

rup [host...]


 

OPTIONS

Sort the display alphabetically by host name. Sort the display by load average. Sort the display by up time.
 

DESCRIPTION

The rup command displays the current time, amount of time since the system was last started, number of users logged in, and the load averages for remote machines. It broadcasts on the local network, and displays the responses it receives.

Normally, the listing is in the order in which responses are received, but this order can be changed by specifying one of the options listed in the Flags section. When host arguments are given, rather than broadcasting, the rup command queries the list of specified hosts.

A remote host only responds if it is running the rstatd daemon, which is normally started from the inetd daemon.
 

RESTRICTIONS

Broadcasting does not work through gateways.
