rup(1)                           User Commands                          rup(1)



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

SYNOPSIS
       rup [-hlt]

       rup [host...]

DESCRIPTION
       rup gives a status similar to uptime for remote machines. It broadcasts
       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(1M).

       In the absence of a name service, such as LDAP  or  NIS,  rup  displays
       host names as numeric IP addresses.

OPTIONS
       -h       Sort the display alphabetically by host name.



       -l       Sort the display by load average.



       -t       Sort the display by up time.
