NAME

  rwho - Shows which users are logged in to hosts on the local network.

SYNOPSIS

  rwho [-a]

  rwho [-a] [users]

FLAGS

  -a  Includes all users.  Without this flag, users whose sessions are idle
      an hour or more are not included in the report.

DESCRIPTION

  The rwho command displays the username, hostname, and start date and time
  of each session for everyone on the local network who is currently logged
  in to a host running the rwhod daemon.

  If one or more user names are specified, only the status of those users
  whose names are listed appears on the screen.	 If a user has not typed any-
  thing for at least 3 minutes, rwho reports the idle time as a number of
  minutes in the last column.  After an hour of inactivity, a user is not
  included unless the -a flag is specified.  Because this command displays a
  lot of output, use this command with caution if the local network has a
  large number of users.

  Status information is broadcast once every 3 minutes by each network host
  running the rwhod daemon.  Any activity (such as a user logging on or off)
  that takes place between broadcasts is not reflected until the next broad-
  cast.

EXAMPLES

  To get a report of all users currently logged into hosts on the local net-
  work, enter:
