ftpwho - show current process information for each FTP session




The ftpwho command shows process information for all active proftpd connections, and a count of all connected users off of each server. Proftpd sessions spawned from inetd are counted separately from those created by a master proftpd standalone server.


-h,--help Display a short usage description, including all available options. -f,--file scoreboard-file Specify the full path to proftpd's run-time scoreboard file (configured via the ScoreboardFile directive in proftpd.conf ). If proftpd's default direc‐ tory has been changed via this directive, ftpwho must either be recompiled, or this option must be used in order to find proftpd's scoreboard. -o,--outform format Specify an output format. Currently, two "formats" are supported: compat and oneline. The compat format is used for backward compatibility. The oneline format causes all of the fields for a session to be displayed on a single line, for ease of line-based searches (e.g. grep). -v,--verbose Reports additional information for each connection, such as the remote host and current working directory. -S,--server server-name Specify the ServerName for a specific virtual host. If used, ftpwho will only show session informa‐ tion for the given virtual host.
