utmpx(4)                         File Formats                         utmpx(4)



NAME
       utmpx, wtmpx - utmpx and wtmpx database entry formats

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;utmpx.h>&gt;
       /var/adm/utmpx
       /var/adm/wtmpx

DESCRIPTION
       The  utmpx and wtmpx files are extended database files that have super-
       seded the obsolete utmp and wtmp database files.

       The utmpx database contains user access and accounting information  for
       commands  such  as  who(1),  write(1), and login(1). The wtmpx database
       contains the history of user access and accounting information for  the
       utmpx database.

USAGE
       Applications should not access these databases directly, but should use
       the functions described on the getutxent(3C) manual  page  to  interact
       with  the  utmpx and wtmpx databases to ensure that they are maintained
       consistently.
