NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     rusers - who is logged in to machines on local network

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     rusers [-al] [-h | -i | -u] [hosts ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The rusers command produces output similar  to  who(1),  but
for the list of
     hosts  or  all machines on the local network.  For each host
responding to
     the rusers query, the hostname with the names of  the  users
     logged  on is printed on each line.  The rusers command will
wait for 30
     seconds to catch late responders.

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Print all machines responding even if no one is currently logged

     -h      Sort alphabetically by hostname.

     -i       Sort by idle time in ascending order.  Unlike other
 when the -i and -l flags are mixed the output
is sorted by
             the  idle  time  of each individual user.  If the -l
flag is not
             specified, the idle time for a machine is considered
to be the
             lowest idle time of a user on that host.

     -l      Print a long format listing.  This includes the user
name, host
             name, tty that the user is logged in  to,  the  date
and time the
             user  logged  in,  the amount of time since the user
typed on the
             keyboard, and the remote host they  logged  in  from
(if applicable).

     -u      Sort by number of users logged in.
