Unix Tip #4634- November 18, 2014

WHEN DID THAT SHELL GET DISCONNECTED?


Have you ever come back
to work the next day and
had your session(s)
disconnected, but aren't
sure when it occurred?

I've found that logging
into a machine with

ssh machinename;date

is pretty useful, as if
the machine dies (or the
network loses connection
overnight), you will
immediately know when it
happened.
