RPC.RUSERSD(8)          OpenBSD System Manager's Manual         RPC.RUSERSD(8)

NAME
     rpc.rusersd - logged in users server

SYNOPSIS
     rpc.rusersd

DESCRIPTION
     rpc.rusersd is a server which returns information about users currently
     logged in to the system.  At startup, rpc.rusersd opens /var/run/utmp and
     subsequently performs a chroot(2) to /var/empty and switches to user
     nobody.

     The currently logged in users are queried using the rusers(1) command.
     The rpc.rusersd daemon is normally invoked by inetd(8).

     rpc.rusersd uses an RPC protocol defined in
     /usr/include/rpcsvc/rnusers.x.

SEE ALSO
