rusers(1)							    rusers(1)


  rusers - Display a list of users who are logged in to	a remote machine


  rusers [-ahilu] host...


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

  -h  Sort alphabetically by host name.

  -i  Sort by idle time.

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

  -u  Sort by number of	users.


  The rusers command displays information about	users and processes running
  on remote machines.  The listing is in the order in which responses are
  received, but	this order can be changed by specifying	one of the options
  listed in the	OPTIONS	section.

  By default the rusers	command	prints the names of the	users logged in.
  When the -l option is	given, additional information is printed for each
  user,	as follows:

       userid hostname:terminal	login date login time idle time	login host

  If hostname and login	host are the  same  value, the login host field	is
  not displayed.  Likewise, if hostname	is not idle, the idle time is not
  displayed. A remote host only	responds if it is running the rusersd daemon,
  which	may be started from the	inetd daemon or	the listen function.


  Commands: who(1), inetd(8)
