ruptime -- show host status of local machines
ruptime gives a status line like uptime(1) for each machine on the local
network; these are formed from packets broadcast by each host on the net-
work via the rwhod(8) daemon. The default broadcast time by the hosts is
every three minutes.
Machines for which no status report has been received for 11 minutes are
shown as being down.
The options are as follows:
-a Users idle an hour or more are not counted unless the -a flag is
-l Sort by load average.
-r Reverses the sort order.
-t Sort by uptime.
-u Sort by number of users.
The default listing is sorted by host name.
