RWHO(1)                      BSD Reference Manual                      RWHO(1)

NAME
     rwho - who is logged in on local machines

SYNOPSIS
     rwho [-a]

DESCRIPTION
     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 5
     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 re-
     ports 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.

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

SEE ALSO
     ruptime(1),  rwhod(8)

HISTORY
     The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.

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