RUP(1C)                                                                RUP(1C)



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

SYNOPSIS
       rup [ -hlt ]
       rup [ host...  ]

AVAILABILITY
       This  command  is  available  with the Networking software installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       rup gives a status similar to uptime for remote  machines.   It  broad-
       casts on the local network, and displays the responses it receives.

       Normally,  the listing is in the order that responses are received, but
       this order can be changed by  specifying  one  of  the  options  listed
       below.

       When  host  arguments are given, rather than broadcasting rup will only
       query the list of specified hosts.

       A remote host will only respond if it is  running  the  rstatd  daemon,
       which is normally started up from inetd(8C).

OPTIONS
       -h     Sort the display alphabetically by host name.

       -l     Sort the display by load average.

       -t     Sort the display by up time.

FILES
       /etc/servers

SEE ALSO
       ruptime(1C), inetd(8C), rstatd(8C)

BUGS
       Broadcasting does not work through gateways.
