As a common user under Sun OS, is there a program that
can "repeatly" do "who" and "ps" , and report to me. So
I know who is on and what he is doing.
Thanks.

Option 1)
get tcsh installed on your machine.
ftp.win.tue.nl:pub/unix/tcsh*

sample usage:
set tperiod=1
alias peridoic checkusers

This will cause the program checkusers to be run every 1 minute
and output to your screen. checkusers can have your who and
ps stuff in it.

Option 2)
use cron to get the info and mail it to you
run your checkusers program out of crontab every minute and
mail info to you when somebody is doing whatever you are looking
for:

0-59 * * * * checkusers

Option 3)
Write a shell script that has an infinite loop that does this
and run it in the background
#!/bin/sh

while /bin/true
do
      who ; ps
done

many more ways to do this...
