 NAME
      rup - show host status of local machines (RPC version)

 SYNOPSIS
      rup [-h] [-l] [-t] [host ...]

 DESCRIPTION
      rup gives a status similar to uptime for remote machines.	 It
      broadcasts on the local network and displays the responses it
      receives.	 Though the listing is normally in the order responses are
      received, the order can be changed by using command-line options.	 The
      broadcast process takes about two minutes.

      When host arguments are given, instead of broadcasting, rup only
      queries the list of specified hosts.

      A remote host only responds if it is running the rstatd daemon (see
      rstatd(1M)).

    Options
      rup recognizes the following command-line options:

	   -h	   Sort the display alphabetically by host name.

	   -l	   Sort the display by load average.

	   -t	   Sort the display by up time.

 WARNINGS
      Broadcasting does not work through gateways; therefore, rup does not
      report information about machines that are reachable only through
      gateways.

 DIAGNOSTICS
      The exit code of rup is the number of errors (eg. bad host names)
      encountered; zero for success.
