rpc.rusersdlogged in users server


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 _rusersd.

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.
