LASTLOG(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 LASTLOG(8)



NAME
       lastlog - examine lastlog file

SYNOPSIS
       lastlog [<-u|--user> login-name]
               [<-t|--time> days] [<-h|--help>]

DESCRIPTION
       lastlog  formats  and  prints  the  contents  of  the  last  login  log
       /var/log/lastlog file. The login-name, port, and last login  time  will
       be  printed.  The  default  (no  flags)  causes  lastlog  entries to be
       printed, sorted by their order in /etc/passwd.

       -u, --user login-name
              will cause the lastlog record for login-name only to be printed

       -t, --time days
              will cause only the lastlogins more recent  than  fIdays  to  be
              printed

       -h, --help
              print a one-line help message and exit.

       The -t flag overrides the use of -u.

       If  the user has never logged in the message "**Never logged in**" will
       be displayed instead of the port and time.

FILES
       /var/log/lastlog - lastlog logging file

CAVEATS
       Large gaps in uid numbers will cause the lastlog program to run  longer
       with  no  output to the screen (i.e. if mmdf=800 and last uid=170, pro-
       gram will appear to hang as it processes uid 171-799).
