utmp(4)                          File Formats                          utmp(4)



NAME
       utmp, wtmp - utmp and wtmp database entry formats

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;utmp.h>&gt;
       /var/adm/utmp
       /var/adm/wtmp

DESCRIPTION
       The utmp and wtmp database files are obsolete and are no longer present
       on the system.  They have been superseded by the extended database con-
       tained in the utmpx and wtmpx database files.  See utmpx(4).

       It  is possible for /var/adm/utmp to reappear on the system. This would
       most likely occur if a third party application  that  still  uses  utmp
       recreates  the  file  if  it  finds it missing. This file should not be
       allowed to remain on the system. The user should investigate to  deter-
       mine which application is recreating this file.
