You can make a user counter by:
Count the number of lines in the /etc/passwd file
First you would need to read the file into a variable by using:
Code:
export users=`cat /etc/passwd`
Then just count the lines:
Code:
export num=`echo "$users" | wc -l`
Then the number is stored in a nice little variable called num. To call it use $num.
As for the processes, use
Code:
export running=`ps -ef|wc -l`
Then use $running to get the number

Total number of users or number of currently logged in users?
If you want the total users bashcommando's should help, if you need the current logged in try the "who" command.
