Manual Pages  — RWHO

NAME

rwho – who is logged in on local machines

CONTENTS

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 has not typed to the system for a minute or more, then rwho reports this idle time.

The following option is available:
-a
  Include all users. By default, if a user has not typed to the system for an hour or more, then the user will be omitted from the output.

FILES

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

SEE ALSO

ruptime(1), who(1), rwhod(8)

HISTORY

The rwho command appeared in BSD 4.3 .

BUGS

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

Do you laugh when the waiter drops a tray full of dishes? Unix weenies do. They're the first ones to laugh at hapless users, trying to figure out an error message that doesn't have anything to do with what they just typed.
