KILL IDLE USERS


Here is a quick script to
kill idle users at the 10
hour mark.

Cchange the 10 to the hour
you would like to kill at
and #run as cron every hour
This is for HP UNIX, check
the fields on the "who"
command for your flavor

who -u | cut -c 1-10,39-50 | grep 10: > current
for each IDLE_USR ( `cat current | awk '{print $3}'` )
kill -9 $IDLE_USR
end
exit (0)
