NAME

users - Munin plugin to monitor the number of users logged in to a Unix box.

APPLICABLE SYSTEMS

Should work on any Unix that has the who(1) command.

CONFIGURATION

None needed

INTERPRETATION

The plugin simply runs the who(1) command and counts the number of users logged in by different methods (tty, pty, X, etc).

BUGS

Logins or sessions that are not registered in /var/run/utmp as part of the session setup will not be counted (this is a feature, not a bug).

Only tested extensively on Linux.
