rusers(1)                        User Commands                       rusers(1)

       rusers - who is logged in on remote machines

       rusers [-ahilu] host...

       The  rusers  command  produces output similar to who(1), but for remote
       machines. The listing is in the order that responses are received,  but
       this  order  can  be  changed  by  specifying one of the options listed

       The default is to print out the names of the users logged in. When  the
       -l flag is given, additional information is printed for each user:

       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

       A  remote  host  will only respond if it is running the rusersd daemon,
       which may be started up from inetd(1M) or listen(1M).

       In the absence of a name service, such as LDAP or NIS, rusers  displays
       host names as numeric IP addresses.

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

       -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.
