 NAME
      rusers - determine who is logged in on machines on local network

 SYNOPSIS
      rusers [-a] [-h] [-i] [-l] [-u] [host ...]

 DESCRIPTION
      rusers produces output similar to the "quick" option of who(1), but
      for remote machines.  It broadcasts on the local network and prints
      the responses it receives.  Though the listing is normally in the
      order that responses are received, the order can be changed by
      specifying a command-line option.	 The broadcast process takes about
      two minutes.

      When host arguments are given, instead of broadcasting, rusers only
      queries the list of specified hosts.

      For each machine, the default is to print a line listing the host name
      and all users on that host.  When the -l option is given, rusers uses
      an output format similar to rwho(1).  If a user has not typed on the
      system for a minute or more, the idle time is reported.

      A remote host only responds if it is running the rusersd(1M) daemon.

    Options
      rusers recognizes the following command-line options:

	   -a	   Give a report for a machine even if no users are logged
		   in on it.

	   -h	   Sort alphabetically by host name.

	   -i	   Sort by idle time.

	   -l	   Give a longer listing in the style of who-R (see who(1)).

	   -u	   Sort by number of users.

 RETURN VALUE
      rusers returns exit code zero if no errors are encountered; otherwise
      it returns the number of errors found.

 AUTHOR
      rusers was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.

 WARNINGS
      Broadcasting does not work through gateways; therefore, rusers does
      not report information about machines that are reached only through
      gateways.
