rwho(1)                          User Commands                         rwho(1)



NAME
       rwho - who is logged in on local machines

SYNOPSIS
       rwho [-a]

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

NOTES
       rwho does not work through gateways.

       The directory /var/spool/rwho must exist on the host from which rwho is
       run.

       This service takes up progressively more network bandwith as the number
       of  hosts  on  the  local  net  increases. For large networks, the cost
       becomes prohibitive.

       The rwho service daemon, in.rwhod(1M), must be enabled for this command
       to return useful results.
