       aulast - a program similar to last


       aulast [ options ]


       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.

       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.


       --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. The audit events must be in the raw format.

       --tty  Limit the  report  to  a  specific  tty's  activity.  The  names  of  ttys  can  be
              abbreviated. For example, 0 is the same as tty0.

              Limit the report to a specific user.


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


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