Tries the command "last | more".

You can see more about the command in the man.

"man last"

I hope help you

Tries the "who" or "w" command.

example :

root@witt01 # w
3:04pm up 33 day(s), 8:13, 6 users, load average: 3.99, 4.21, 3.55
User tty login@ idle JCPU PCPU what
eoc pts/11 12:20pm 49 rlogin eoc1sc2b
root pts/9 2:43pm 21 -ksh

eoc pts/0 12:12pm 21 -ksh
eoc pts/12 2:48pm 12 7 -ksh
eoc pts/14 12:27pm 50 -ksh

root@witt01 # who
