utmpx(4)                         File Formats                         utmpx(4)

NAME
       utmpx, wtmpx - utmpx and wtmpx database entry formats

SYNOPSIS
       #include <utmpx.h>
       /var/adm/utmpx
       /var/adm/wtmpx

DESCRIPTION
       The utmpx and wtmpx files are extended database files that have
       superseded the obsolete utmp and wtmp database files.

       The utmpx database contains user access and accounting information for
       commands such as who(1), write(1), and login(1). The wtmpx database
       contains the history of user access and accounting information for the
       utmpx database.

USAGE
       Applications should not access these databases directly, but should use
       the functions described on the getutxent(3C) manual page to interact
       with the utmpx and wtmpx databases to ensure that they are maintained
       consistently.

FILES
       /var/adm/utmpx
             user access and adminstration information

       /var/adm/wtmpx
             history of user access and adminstrative information
