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

rup -- remote status display SYNOPSIS
rup [host ...] DESCRIPTION
The rup utility 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 rpc.rstatd(8) daemon must be running on the remote host for this command to work. The rup utility uses an RPC protocol defined in <rpcsvc/rstat.x>. EXAMPLES
example% rup otherhost otherhost 7:36am 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 rpcbind(8)), and cannot accommodate any RPC-based services. The host may be down. SEE ALSO
rpc.rstatd(8), rpcbind(8) HISTORY
The rup command appeared in Sun-OS. BUGS
The sorting options are not implemented. BSD

rup - show host status of remote machines (RPC version) SYNOPSIS
rup [-hlt] rup [host...] DESCRIPTION
rup gives a status similar to uptime for remote machines. It broadcasts on the local network, and displays the responses it receives. Normally, the listing is in the order that responses are received, but this order can be changed by specifying one of the options listed below. When host arguments are given, rather than broadcasting rup will only query the list of specified hosts. A remote host will only respond if it is running the rstatd daemon, which is normally started up from inetd(1M). In the absence of a name service, such as LDAP or NIS, rup displays host names as numeric IP addresses. OPTIONS
-h Sort the display alphabetically by host name. -l Sort the display by load average. -t Sort the display by up time. ATTRIBUTES
