rup [ -hlt ]
rup [ host... ]
This command is available with the Networking software installation
option. Refer to for information on how to install optional software.
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
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).
-h Sort the display alphabetically by host name.
-l Sort the display by load average.
-t Sort the display by up time.
