MirOS Manual: rwho(1)

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(1), but for all machines
     on the local network. If no report has been received from a machine for
     11 minutes then rwho assumes the machine is down, and does not report
     users last known to be logged into that machine.

     If a user 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

     finger(1), rup(1), ruptime(1), rusers(1), who(1), rwhod(8)

HISTORY

     The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.

BUGS

     The rwho protocol only supports up to eight character login names even
     though OpenBSD supports much longer ones. Long login names will be trun-
     cated.

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