I am doing a linux script to extract which users are logged onto a machine, from where, and how long they have been idle.
So far I have been using the "w" command in linux.
However I now noticed that it truncates usernames and source
I have three users logged on
They are logged on from either: testserver, or superdupertestserver
The output of w is:
testuser pts/2 testserver 10:12 29.00s 0.15s 0.15s -bash
testuser pts/3 superdupertestse 10:12 21.00s 0.18s 0.18s -bash
lala-tes pts/4 superdupertestse 10:12 21.00s 0.18s 0.18s -bash
ENVIRONMENT PROCPS_USERLEN Override the default width of the username column. Defaults to 8. PROCPS_FROMLEN Override the default width of the from column. Defaults to 16.
