NAME
rwho -- who is logged in on local machines SYNOPSIS
rwho [-aHq] 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 the 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 reports this idle time. -a Include all users. By default, if a user hasn't typed to the system for an hour or more, then the user will be omitted from the output. -H Write column headings above the regular output. -q ``Quick mode'': List only the names and the number of users currently logged on. When this option is used, all other options are ignored. FILES
