RUP(1) BSD General Commands Manual RUP(1)NAMErup — remote status display
SYNOPSISrup [host ...]
The rup utility displays a summary of the current system status of a par‐
ticular host 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 aver‐
ages. 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 com‐
mand to work. The rup utility uses an RPC protocol defined in
example% rup otherhost
otherhost 7:36am up 6 days, 16:45, load average: 0.20, 0.23, 0.18
rup: RPC: Program not registered The 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.
