RWHO(1)                   BSD General Commands Manual                  RWHO(1)


NAME

     rwho - who is logged in on local machines


SYNOPSIS

     rwho [-a]


DESCRIPTION

     The rwho command produces output similar to who, but for all machines on
     the local network.  If no report has been received from a machine for 11
     minutes then rwho assumes the machine is down, and does not report users
     last known to be logged into that machine.

     If a users hasn’t typed to the system for a minute or more, then rwho
     reports this idle time.  If a user hasn’t typed to the system for an hour
     or more, then the user will be omitted from the output of rwho unless the
     -a flag is given.

BUGS

     This is unwieldy when the number of machines on the local net is large.
