NAME
  w - Prints a summary of current system activity

SYNOPSIS

  w [-fm] [-h] [-l | -s] [user]

  w -u [-m]

  The w command prints a summary of the current activity on the system, fol-
  lowed by information about users on the system.

DESCRIPTION

  The system summary shows the current time, the amount of time since the
  system was last started, the number of users logged in to the system, and
  the load averages.  The load average numbers give the number of jobs in the
  run queue for the last 5 seconds, the last 30 seconds, and the last 60
  seconds.  The Mach factor is a variant of the load average, given for the
  same intervals; the closer its value to 0 (zero), the higher the load.

  The information displayed for each user includes:

    +  Who is logged in.

    +  What each user is doing.

    +  The abbreviated name of the tty or pty each user is on.

    +  The location, such as a remote site, from which each user logged in.

    +  The time of day each user logged in.

    +  The number of minutes since each user last entered data at the key-
       board.

    +  The name and arguments of the current process.

    +  The system unit time used by the current process (PCPU).

    +  The system unit time used by all processes and their children on that
       system (JPCU).

  If you specify a user, output is restricted to that user.

FLAGS

  -f  Suppresses the from field.

  -h  Suppresses the system summary and the heading line.

  -l  Prints information in the long format.  This is the default.

  -m  Prints the Mach factor instead of the load average in the system sum-
      mary.

  -s  Prints the information in short format.  In the short form, the login
      time, system unit time, and command arguments are omitted.

  -u  Prints the system summary only.  Using this flag is equivalent to
      entering the uptime command.
