The w Command The w command shows who is logged in to the system and what they are doing. A login, logging in or logging on is the entering of identifier information into a system by a user in order to access that system e. It generally requires the user to enter two pieces of information, first a user name and then a password.
I noticed on my computer the guest account is always getting hit when I log in. Any reason for this? I think it may be windows itself doing something with the guest account.
Thanks for the update.
Did not know about that utility. Another good one I use is system info, you can use that to get either the uptime or boot time of a machine, depending on the so version uptime isnt available. I want to monitor who had access the shared folder in server, is there any tool available to check who had access the server and who had copy the files and deleted the files in server.
So kindly help us to solve above issues. Regards, 8 Steve Wiseman June 23, at 9: Here is an article that walks you through it: For example, the results showed that the company controller had logged into a lot of systems, and several other regular users logged into 3, 4, or 5 systems other than the ones they normally sit at.
In fact, we have the users lock their computers before leaving for the day. To test this, I initated an RDP session to several machines and they were still locked, under the corrrect users accounts. What I think is happening seems to be common for a lot of Windows Scripting.
What I have experienced in the past is, when a script fails to return any meaningful i. I wish this worked better but I have seen this on many networks over the years. This info is pulled right from windows…but it is not only updated when you login to the desktop, For example, are any of those machines being used for sharing printers or sharing files?
Then again, it could be possible that windows is returning bogus info. Thanks, 11 David June 26, at If an account was locked and then unlocked the script will consider that as a logon which is not accurate especially if I want to know the logon time, any solutions to that?
Thank you, 12 Steve Wiseman June 26, at 1: Still have not found a way around this.
Also, some people have reported to me that if a machine goes to sleep, and is woken up…that will count So we are still playing around with this to see if we can get more accurate info out of windows. What would be perfect is if we could just pull out the last user to actually login to a desktop and nothing else.
That type of info could be really valuable. It caught my attention that those specific systems showed up as being logged into by an unrelated user from the same office, not the user that I had locked the machine with same user on all 3 systems.
Obviously, I was a little upset thinking that the person shown had rebooted the system and logged in when, by locking the PCs, no one should have been able access them.When you issue the command tail -f /var/log/syslog, tail will continue watching the log file and print out the next line written to the file.
This means you can follow what is written to syslog, as it happens, within your terminal window (Figure 3). As you can see there are at least three ways to get the information you need to remotely view who is logged on in a totally non-intrusive way.

To do this, you can use the “clamscan” command. This is a rich command that can work with many different parameters so you'd better insert “ clamscan –-help ” on the terminal first and see the various things that what you can do with it.
In this post, we will see how we can use history command effectively to extract the command which was executed by users in Bash shell. This may be useful for audit purpose or to find out what command is executed at what date and time.
