rup - remote status display
rup [-dhlt] [host ...]
rup displays a summary of the current system status of a
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.
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 command
to work. rup uses an RPC protocol defined in
$ rup otherhost
otherhost up 6 days, 16:45, load average: 0.20,
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
is excessively congested, or the rpc.rstatd(8) daemon has
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 RPCbased
services. The host may be down.
