RWHO(1) BSD Reference Manual RWHO(1)
rwho - who is logged in on local machines
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.
/var/rwho/whod.* information about other machines

The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.
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. MirOS BSD #10-current April 23, 1991 1
