remote status display
utility displays a summary of the current system status of a particular
or all hosts on the local network. The output shows the current time of day, how long the system has been up, and the load averages. The load average numbers give the number of jobs in the run queue averaged over 1, 5 and 15 minutes.
The rpc.rstatd(8) daemon must be running on the remote host for this command to work. The rup utility uses an RPC protocol defined in < rpcsvc/rstat.x>.
example% rup otherhost
otherhost 7:36am up 6 days, 16:45, load average: 0.20, 0.23, 0.18
rup: RPC: Program not registered
rpc.rstatd(8) daemon has not been started on the remote host.
rup: RPC: Timed out
A communication error occurred. Either the network is excessively congested, or the
rpc.rstatd(8) daemon has terminated on the remote host.
rup: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out
The remote host is not running the portmapper (see
rpcbind(8)), and cannot accommodate any RPC-based services. The host may be down.
rup command appeared in Sun-OS.
