NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

  rup [ -hlt ]

  rup [ host ...  ]

FLAGS

  -h  Sort the display alphabetically by host name.

  -l  Sort the display by load average.

  -t  Sort the display by up time.

DESCRIPTION

  The rup command displays the current time, amount of time since the system
  was last started, number of users logged in, and th load averages for
  remote machines.  It broadcasts on the local network, and displays the
  responses it receives.

  Normally, the listing is in the order in which responses are received, but
  this order can be changed by specifying one of the options listed in the
  Flags section.  When host arguments are given, rather than broadcasting,
  the rup command queries the list of specified hosts.

  A remote host only responds if it is running the rstatd daemon, which is
  normally started from the inetd daemon.

RESTRICTIONS

  Broadcasting does not work through gateways.
