After I run 'who' as root I receive the list of logged on users, tough some of these are not really logged. What could be misconfigured ? I'm under Fedora Core 2 and mostly using ssh 3.6 to remote connect. Thnx.
If you're using SSH to remote connect, as are other users, sometimes their sessions get disconnected yet SSH won't kill the session.
What you can do is either let init inherit the processes and reap them, or just setup your SSH config to kill off users that get disconnected or have not done anything on their sessions for a pre-determined amount of time.
Actually the table from 'who' is wrong, even with tcpkeepalive in sshd_config people are getting stuck and there are no processes to be killed...Guess it's the utmp file that's not being renewed, but why ? And how can I erase it ?
