RUP(1)                    BSD General Commands Manual                   RUP(1)


NAME

     rup - remote status display


SYNOPSIS

     rup [-dshlt] [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 following options are available:

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

     -s      Print time data in seconds (seconds of uptime or seconds since
             the epoch), for scripts.

     -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.


EXAMPLE

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


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 exces-
             sively 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 accomodate any RPC-based services.  The host may be
             down.
