RWHO(1C)                                                              RWHO(1C)



NAME
       rwho - who's logged in on local machines

SYNOPSIS
       rwho [ -a ]

AVAILABILITY
       The  rwho service daemon, rwhod(8C) must be enabled for this command to
       return useful results.  Refer to finger(1), rup(1C) and rusers(1C)  for
       alternatives.

AVAILABILITY
       This  command  is  available  with the Networking software installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       The rwho command  produces  output  similar  to  who(1),  but  for  all
       machines  on  your  network.   If  no  report  has been received from a
       machine for 5 minutes, rwho assumes the machine is down, and  does  not
       report users last known to be logged into that machine.

       If  a  user  has  not  typed  to  the system for a minute or more, rwho
       reports this idle time.  If a user has not  typed to the system for  an
       hour or more, the user is omitted from the output of rwho unless the -a
       flag is given.

OPTIONS
       -a   Report all users whether or not they have typed to the  system  in
            the past hour.

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

BUGS
       Does not work through gateways.
       This is unwieldy when the number of machines on the local net is large.
