rusers - Display a list of users who are logged in to a
rusers [-ahilu] host...
Give a report for a machine even if no users are logged
in. Sort alphabetically by host name. Sort by idle time.
Give a longer listing in the style of who(1). Sort by
number of users.
The rusers command displays information about users and
processes running on remote machines. The listing is in
the order in which responses are received, but this order
can be changed by specifying one of the options listed in
the OPTIONS section.
By default the rusers command prints the names of the
users logged in. When the -l option is given, additional
information is printed for each user, as follows:
userid hostname:terminal login date login time idle time
If hostname and login host are the same value, the login
host field is not displayed. Likewise, if hostname is not
idle, the idle time is not displayed. A remote host only
responds if it is running the rusersd daemon, which may be
started from the inetd daemon or the listen function.
Commands: who(1), inetd(8)
