whodo - who is doing what
/usr/sbin/whodo [-h] [-l] [user]
The whodo command produces formatted and dated output from
information in the /var/adm/utmpx and /proc/pid files.
The display is headed by the date, time, and machine name.
For each user logged in, device name, user-ID and login time
is shown, followed by a list of active processes associated
with the user-ID. The list includes the device name,
process-ID, CPU minutes and seconds used, and process name.
If user is specified, output is restricted to all sessions
pertaining to that user.
The following options are supported:
-h Suppress the heading.
-l Produce a long form of output. The fields displayed
are: the user's login name, the name of the tty the
user is on, the time of day the user logged in (in
hours:minutes), the idle time - that is, the time
since the user last typed anything (in hours:minutes),
the CPU time used by all processes and their children
on that terminal (in minutes:seconds), the CPU time
used by the currently active processes (in
minutes:seconds), and the name and arguments of the
Example 1: Using the whodo Command
produces a display like this:
Tue Mar 12 15:48:03 1985
tty09 mcn 8:51
tty09 28158 0:29 sh
tty52 bdr 15:23
tty52 21688 0:05 sh
tty52 22788 0:01 whodo
tty52 22017 0:03 vi
tty52 22549 0:01 sh
xt162 lee 10:20
tty08 6748 0:01 layers
xt162 6751 0:01 sh
xt163 6761 0:05 sh
tty08 6536 0:05 sh
If any of the LC_* variables ( LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES,
LC_TIME, LC_COLLATE, LC_NUMERIC, and LC_MONETARY ) (see
environ(5)) are not set in the environment, the operational
behavior of whodo(1) for each corresponding locale category
is determined by the value of the LANG environment variable.
If LC_ALL is set, its contents are used to override both the
LANG and the other LC_* variables. If none of the above
variables is set in the environment, the "C" (U.S. style)
locale determines how whodo behaves.
Determines how whodo handles characters. When LC_CTYPE
is set to a valid value, whodo can display and handle
text and filenames containing valid characters for
that locale. The whodo command can display and handle
Extended Unix code (EUC) characters where any indivi-
dual character can be 1, 2, or 3 bytes wide. whodo can
also handle EUC characters of 1, 2, or more column
widths. In the "C" locale, only characters from ISO
8859-1 are valid.
Determines how diagnostic and informative messages are
presented. This includes the language and style of the
messages, and the correct form of affirmative and
negative responses. In the "C" locale, the messages
are presented in the default form found in the program
itself (in most cases, U.S. English).
Determines how whodo handles date and time formats. In
the "C" locale, date and time handling follow the U.S.
