UTXRM(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		      UTXRM(8)

NAME
     utxrm -- remove sessions from the user accounting database

SYNOPSIS
     utxrm identifier ...

DESCRIPTION
     The utxrm utility can be used to remove stale sessions from the user
     accounting	database, by referring to their	identifier.  Stale sessions
     can occur if a login service exits	prematurely or fails to	remove the
     session from the accounting database.

     Utilities such as w(1) will not display the identifier corresponding with
     a login session, since its	value is typically only	of use by the process
     managing the record.  The following command can be	used to	obtain all
     records from the user accounting database's active	session	table, includ-
     ing its identifiers:

	   getent utmpx	active

     Identifiers can either be supplied	in hexadecimal form as displayed by
     getent(1),	or as a	string if the identifier allows	such a representation.

     Because this utility requires write-access	to the user accounting data-
     base, its use is limited to the super-user.

SEE ALSO
     getent(1),	w(1), pututxline(3).

HISTORY
     The utxrm utility appeared	in FreeBSD 9.0.
