doveadm-who - Show who is logged in to the Dovecot server


doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] who [-1] [-a anvil_socket_path] [user] [ip[/mask]]


The who command is used to show which users from which hosts are currently connected to
which service.


Global doveadm(1) options:

-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.

-f formatter
Specifies the formatter for formatting the output. Supported formatters are:

flow prints each line with key=value pairs.

pager prints each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form
feed character (^L).

tab prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

table prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

-o setting=value
Overrides the configuration setting from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the
userdb with the given value. In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
may be specified multiple times.

-v Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

This command uses by default the output formatter table.

Command specific options:

-1 Print one line per user and connection. Otherwise the connections are grouped by
the username.

-a anvil_socket_path
This option is used to specify an alternative socket. The option's argument is
either an absolute path to a local UNIX domain socket, or a hostname and port
(hostname:port), in order to connect a remote host via a TCP socket.

By default doveadm(1) will use the socket /var/run/dovecot/anvil. The socket may
be located in another directory, when the default base_dir setting was overridden
in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.


Specify an ip address or network range, in CIDR notation, to reduce the result to
matching connections.

user List only users, whose name match user. It's also possible to use wildcards in the
user name.


Show authenticated sessions, filtered by the client's IP address.
