rusers - who is logged in to machines on local network
rusers [-al] [-h | -i | -u] [hosts ...]
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
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, 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
-u Sort by number of users logged in.
