rwho


NAME
     rwho - who is logged in on local machines

SYNOPSIS
     rwho [-a]

DESCRIPTION
     The rwho command produces output similar to who(1), but  for
     all  machines  on  your  network.   If  no  report  has been
     received from a machine for  5  minutes,  rwho  assumes  the
     machine  is down, and does not report users last known to be
     logged into that machine.

     If a user has not typed to the system for a minute or  more,
     rwho reports this idle time.  If a user has not typed to the
     system for an hour or more, the user  is  omitted  from  the
     output of rwho unless the -a flag is given.

OPTIONS
     -a       Report all users whether or not they have typed  to
              the system in the past hour.



FILES
     /var/spool/rwho/whod.*          information   about    other
                                     machines

NOTES
     rwho does not work through gateways.

     The directory /var/spool/rwho must exist on  the  host  from
     which rwho is run.

     This service takes up progressively more network bandwith as
     the  number  of  hosts on the local net increases. For large
     networks, the cost becomes prohibitive.
     The rwho service daemon, in.rwhod(1M), must be  enabled  for
     this command to return useful results.
