RUSERS(1)                    BSD Reference Manual                    RUSERS(1)

NAME

     rusers - who is logged in to machines on local network

SYNOPSIS

     rusers [-al] [-h | -i | -u] [hosts ...]

DESCRIPTION

     The rusers command produces output similar to who(1), but for the list of
     hosts or all machines on the local network. For each host responding to
     the rusers query, the hostname with the names of the users currently
     logged on is printed on each line. The rusers command will wait for 30
     seconds to catch late responders.

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Print all machines responding even if no one is currently logged
             in.

     -h      Sort alphabetically by hostname.

     -i      Sort by idle time in ascending order. Unlike other implementa-
             tions, when the -i and -l flags are mixed the output is sorted by
             the idle time of each individual user. If the -l flag is not
             specified, the idle time for a machine is considered to be the
             lowest idle time of a user on that host.

     -l      Print a long format listing. This includes the user name, host
             name, tty that the user is logged in to, the date and time the
             user logged in, the amount of time since the user typed on the
             keyboard, and the remote host they logged in from (if applica-
             ble).

     -u      Sort by number of users logged in.

DIAGNOSTICS

     rusers: RPC: Program not registered
             The rpc.rusersd(8) daemon has not been started on the remote
             host.

     rusers: RPC: Timed out
             A communication error occurred. Either the network is excessively
             congested, or the rpc.rusersd(8) daemon has terminated on the re-
             mote host.

     rusers: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out
             The remote host is not running the portmapper (see portmap(8)),
             and cannot accommodate any RPC-based services. The host may be
             down.
