       aulast - a program similar to last

       aulast [ options ] [ user ] [ tty ]

       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 ttyĆ¢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

       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.

       --bad  Report on the bad logins.

              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.

              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.

              Take audit records from stdin.

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

       last(1), lastb(1), ausearch(8), aureport(8).
