Create a login/logout tracking log file for all users
Authored by: BohrMe on Aug 19, '06 07:34:40PM

I am not a fan of the last command because the wtmp database can become corrupted very easily. I don't know why but it it can. That is why a third party logger can be very helpful.

These kinds of things are important to me because of the kind of logging that I'm required to maintain on my systems. This problem doesn't just show up on Macs. It can show up in Solaris, Linux, IRIX and HP-UX.
