NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       w - Prints a summary of current system activity

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

       w -u  [-m]

       The  w command prints a summary of the current activity on
       the system, followed by information  about  users  on  the

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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 keyboard.  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 the processes  and  their  children  that  are
       associated with the user's tty (JCPU).

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

       Suppresses the from field.  Suppresses the system  summary
       and the heading line.  Prints information in the long format.
  This is the default.  Prints the Mach factor instead
       of  the  load  average  in the system summary.  Prints the
       information in short format.  In the short form, the login
       time, system unit time, and command arguments are omitted.
       Prints the system summary  only.   Using  this  option  is
       equivalent to entering the uptime command.
