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
