       sulog - su command log file


       The   sulog file is a record of all attempts by users on the system  to execute the su(1M)
       command.  Each time  su(1M) is executed, an entry is added to the sulog file.

		  where  mm is the month number and dd is the day number in the month.

       time	  The  time   su(1M) was executed. time is displayed in the form  HH/MM where  HH
		  is the hour number (24 hour system) and  MM is the minute number.

       result	  The result of the  su(1M) command.  A ` + ' sign is displayed in this field  if
		  the su attempt was successful; otherwise  a ` - ' sign is displayed.

       port	  The name of the terminal device from which  su(1M) was executed.

       user	  The user id of the user executing the  su(1M) command.
