Hello,
I would like to know how many ssh sessions are connected to my Linux and if it is possible also the username used and the ip address.

I would like also to know what is the command that I can run by console, so that this message will be shown to all the other ssh remote consoles.

Thanks

Hi,

This command will give you the users connected and ssh connections:

lsof -i | grep ^sshd | grep EST | awk '{ print $3, $8 }'

You can broadcast it to all connected usrs with wall as thetmanv suggested like that:

lsof -i | grep ^sshd | grep EST | awk '{ print $3, $8 }' | wall

Cheers,
K.
