AULAST:(8)               System Administration Utilities              AULAST:(8)



NAME
       aulast - a program similar to last

SYNOPSIS
       aulast [ options ] [ user ] [ tty ]


DESCRIPTION
       aulast is a program that prints out a listing of the last logged in users
       similarly to the program last and lastb. Aulast searches back through the
       audit logs or the given audit log file and displays a list of all users
       logged in (and out) based on the range of time in the audit logs. Names
       of users and tty’s can be given, in which case aulast will show only
       those entries matching the arguments. Names of ttys can be abbreviated,
       thus aulast 0 is the same as last tty0.

       The pseudo user reboot logs in each time the system is rebooted. Thus
       last reboot will show a log of all reboots since the log file was
       created.

       The main difference that a user will notice is that aulast print events
       from oldest to newest, while last prints records from newest to oldest.
       Also, the audit system is not notified each time a tty or pty is
       allocated, so you may not see quite as many records indicating users and
       their tty's.


OPTIONS
       --bad  Report on the bad logins.


       --extract
              Write raw audit records used to create the displayed report into a
              file aulast.log in the current working directory.


       -ffile Use the file instead of the audit logs for input.


       --proof
              Print out the audit event serial numbers used to determine the
              preceding line of the report. A Serial number of 0 is a place
              holder and not an actual event serial number. The serial numbers
              can be used to examine the actual audit records in more detail.
              Also an ausearch query is printed that will let you find the audit
              records associated with that session.


       --stdin
              Take audit records from stdin.


EXAMPLES
       To see this month's logins
       ausearch --start this-month --raw | aulast --stdin
