This command provides useful information that will help you to understand the context of any problem scenario. So, this is the first command that you should run when you review Vyatta in a new environment.

The Version: field states the version of Vyatta software that is currently in use. In this example, the device is using the 2012 software version.

The Uptime: field states how long the system has been running. In other words, you can quickly determine whether or not the system underwent any recent power cycles or reboots. In this example we can see that the system was booted 14 minutes before the command was run.

The output displays the current number of users — in this case, 1 user. If there are other users logged on to the system that you are were unaware of, then this information might help you to identify the cause of the problem.
