rwho man page

rwho — who is logged in on local machines


rwho [-a]


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.

The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.


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