NAME

  rusers - Display a list of users who are logged in to a remote machine

SYNOPSIS

  rusers [ -ahilu ] host ...

FLAGS

  -a  Give a report for a  machine  even  if  no  users	 are logged in.

  -h  Sort alphabetically by host name.

  -i  Sort by idle time.

  -l  Give a longer listing in the style of who(1).

  -u  Sort by number of users.

DESCRIPTION

  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 FLAGS section.

  By default the rusers command prints the names of the users logged in.
  When the -l flag is given, additional information is printed for each user,
  as follows:

       userid hostname:terminal login date login time idle time login host

  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 dae-
  mon, which may be started from the inetd daemon or the listen function.
