NAME

  ruptime - Displays the status	of each	host on	a network

SYNOPSIS

  ruptime [-ar]	[-l  | -t  | -u]

  ruptime [-ar]	[-l  | -t  | -u] [machinename]

  The ruptime command displays the status of each host on a local network
  that is running the rwhod daemon.

  If machinename is specified, only the	status of that machine is displayed.

OPTIONS

  -a  Includes all users.  Without this	option,	users whose sessions are idle
      an hour or more are not included.

  -l  Sorts the	list by	the load average over 5-, 10-, and 15-minute inter-
      vals prior to a server's transmission.  The load averages	are multi-
      plied by 10 to represent the value in decimal format.

  -r  Reverses the sort	order.

  -t  Sorts the	list by	the length of uptime.

  -u  Sorts the	list by	the number of users.

DESCRIPTION

  The status lines are sorted by hostname unless the -l, -t, or	-u option is
  indicated. The status	information is provided	in packets broadcast once
  every	3 minutes by each network host running rwhod. Any activity (such as
  the power to a host being turned on or off) that takes place between broad-
  casts	is not reflected until the next	broadcast. Hosts for which no status
  information is received for 11 minutes are reported as down.

EXAMPLES

   1.  To get a	status report on the hosts on the local	network, enter:
	    $ ruptime

       Information similar to the following is displayed:
	    host1   up	    5:15,	    4 users,  load 0.09, 0.04, 0.04
	    host2   up	    7:45,	    3 users,  load 0.08, 0.07, 0.04
	    host3   up	    2:28,	    0 users,  load 0.01, 0.02, 0.03
	    host4   up	    3+01:44,	    1 user,   load 0.01, 0.02, 0.03
	    host7   up	    7:43,	    1 user,   load 0.06, 0.12, 0.11

       (Output may be formatted	differently on your system.)

   2.  To get a	status report sorted by	load average, enter:
	    $ ruptime -l

       Information similar to the following is displayed:
	    host2   up	    7:45,	    3 users,  load 0.08, 0.07, 0.04
	    host1   up	    5:18,	    4 users,  load 0.07, 0.07, 0.04
