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

NAME

rup − remote status display

SYNOPSIS

rup [−dhlt] [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 it’s local time is.  This isuseful for checking time syncronization 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 /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 excessively 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.
