User Commands rup(1)
rup - show host status of remote machines (RPC version)
rup [ -hlt ]
rup [ host ... ]
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).
-h Sort the display alphabetically by host name.
-l Sort the display by load average.
-t Sort the display by up time.
