utmpset(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    utmpset(8)

NAME
       utmpset - logout	a line from utmp and wtmp file

SYNOPSIS
       utmpset [ -w ] line

DESCRIPTION
       The  utmpset  program modifies the user accounting database utmp(5) and
       optionally wtmp(5) to indicate that the user on the terminal  line  has
       logged out.

       Ordinary	init(8)	processes handle utmp file records for local login ac-
       counting.  The runit(8) program doesn't include code to update the utmp
       file,  the  getty(8)  processes	are handled the	same as	all other ser-
       vices.

       To enable local login accounting, add utmpset to	 the  getty(8)	finish
       scripts,	e.g.:

	$ cat /var/servicegetty-5/finish
	#!/bin/sh
	exec utmpset -w	tty5
	$

OPTIONS
       -w     wtmp.  Additionally  to the utmp file, write an empty record for
	      line to the wtmp file.

EXIT CODES
       utmpset returns 111 on error, 1 on wrong	usage, 0 in all	other cases.
