PAM_LASTLOG(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			   PAM_LASTLOG(8)

NAME
     pam_lastlog -- login accounting PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_lastlog [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The login accounting service module for PAM provides functionality for only one PAM cate-
     gory: session management.	In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the ``session''
     feature.

   Login Accounting Session Management Module
     The login accounting session management component provides functions to initiate
     (pam_sm_open_session()) and terminate (pam_sm_close_session()) sessions.  The
     pam_sm_open_session() function records the session in the utmp(5), utmpx(5), wtmp(5),
     wtmpx(5), lastlog(5), and lastlogx(5) databases.  The pam_sm_close_session() function does
     nothing.

     The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

     debug	syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_nested	Don't update records or print messages if the user is ``nested'', i.e. logged in
		on the same tty on top of another user.

     no_warn	suppress warning messages to the user.

     no_fail	Ignore I/O failures.
