RWHO(1)                     General Commands Manual                    RWHO(1)

     rwho - who is logged in on local machines

     rwho [-aHq]

     The rwho command produces output similar to who(1), 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 the
     users last known to be logged into that machine.

     If a user hasn't typed to the system for a minute or more, then rwho
     reports this idle time.

     -a          Include all users.  By default, if a user hasn't typed to the
                 system for an hour or more, then the user will be omitted
                 from the output.

     -H          Write column headings above the regular output.

     -q          "Quick mode": List only the names and the number of users
                 currently logged on.  When this option is used, all other
                 options are ignored.

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

     finger(1), rup(1), ruptime(1), rusers(1), who(1), rwhod(8)

     The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.

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