remote status display
rup displays a summary of the current
system status of a particular host or all hosts on the
local network. The output shows the current time of day, how long the system
has been up, and the load averages. The load average numbers give the number
of jobs in the run queue averaged over 1, 5, and 15 minutes.
The options are as follows:
- For each host, report what its local time is. This is useful for checking time synchronization on a network.
- Sort the display alphabetically by host name.
- Sort the display by load average.
- Sort the display by up time.
The rpc.rstatd(8) daemon must be running on the remote host for
this command to work.
rup uses an RPC protocol
defined in /usr/include/rpcsvc/rstat.x.
