RUP(1C) Communication Commands RUP(1C)


NAME


rup - show host status of remote machines (RPC version)

SYNOPSIS


rup [-hlt]


rup [host]...


DESCRIPTION


rup gives a status similar to uptime for remote machines. It broadcasts
on the local network, and displays the responses it receives.


Normally, the listing is in the order that responses are received, but
this order can be changed by specifying one of the options listed below.


When host arguments are given, rather than broadcasting rup only queries
the list of specified hosts.


A remote host will only respond if it is running the rstatd daemon, which
is normally started up from inetd(1M).

OPTIONS


-h
Sort the display alphabetically by host name.


-l
Sort the display by load average.


-t
Sort the display by up time.


SEE ALSO


ruptime(1), inetd(1M), attributes(5)

BUGS


Broadcasting does not work through gateways.
