rwho - who is logged in on local machines
The rwho command produces output similar to who(1), but for
on the local network. If no report has been received from a
11 minutes then rwho assumes the machine is down, and does
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. 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
finger(1), rup(1), ruptime(1), rusers(1), who(1), rwhod(8)
The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.
The rwho protocol only supports up to eight character login
though OpenBSD supports much longer ones. Long login names
will be truncated.
rwho is unwieldy when the number of machines on the local
net is large.
