rwho

Show who's logged in on local machines

Syntax:

rwho [-a]

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:

-a
Count all users. Without -a, users who are idle for an hour or more aren't counted.

Description:

The rwho utility produces output similar to who, but for all machines on the local network. If no report has been received from a machine for five minutes, rwho assumes the machine is down, and doesn't report users last known to be logged into that machine.

If a user hasn't typed to the system for a minute or more, rwho reports this idle time. A user who hasn't typed to the system for an hour or more is omitted from the output of rwho unless you specify the -a option.

Files:

/usr/spool/rwho/whod.*
Information about other machines.

The rwho utility requires the libsocket.so shared library.

Caveats:

This utility is unwieldy when the number of machines on the local net is large. It's unreliable due to protocol issues.
