RUP(1)                       BSD Reference Manual                       RUP(1)

NAME

     rup - remote status display

SYNOPSIS

     rup [-dhlt] [host ...]

DESCRIPTION

     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:

     -d      For each host, report what its local time is. This is useful for
             checking time synchronization on a network.

     -h      Sort the display alphabetically by host name.

     -l      Sort the display by load average.

     -t      Sort the display by up time.

     The rpc.rstatd(8) daemon must be running on the remote host for this com-
     mand to work. rup uses an RPC protocol defined in
     /usr/include/rpcsvc/rstat.x.

EXAMPLES

           $ rup otherhost
           otherhost      up 6 days, 16:45,  load average: 0.20, 0.23, 0.18

DIAGNOSTICS

     rup: RPC: Program not registered  The rpc.rstatd(8) daemon has not been
     started on the remote host.

     rup: RPC: Timed out  A communication error occurred. Either the network
     is excessively congested, or the rpc.rstatd(8) daemon has terminated on
     the remote host.

     rup: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out  The remote host is not
     running the portmapper (see portmap(8)), and cannot accommodate any RPC-
     based services. The host may be down.
