rwho(1)								      rwho(1)


  rwho - Shows which users are logged into hosts on the	local network.


  rwho [-a]

  rwho [-a] [users]


  -a  Includes all users.  Without this	option,	users whose sessions are idle
      an hour or more are not included in the report.


  The rwho command displays the	username, hostname, and	start date and time
  of each session for everyone on the local network who	is currently logged
  in to	a host running the rwhod daemon.

  If one or more user names are	specified, only	the status of those users
  whose	names are listed appears on the	screen.	If a user has not typed	any-
  thing	for at least 3 minutes,	rwho reports the idle time as a	number of
  minutes in the last column.  After an	hour of	inactivity, a user is not
  included unless the -a option	is specified. Because this command displays a
  lot of output, use this command with caution if the local network has	a
  large	number of users.

  Status information is	broadcast once every 3 minutes by each network host
  running the rwhod daemon. Any	activity (such as a user logging on or off)
  that takes place between broadcasts is not reflected until the next broad-


  To get a report of all users currently logged	into hosts on the local	net-
