RWHO(1)                    OpenBSD Reference Manual                    RWHO(1)

     rwho - who is logged in on local machines

     rwho [-a]

     The rwho command produces output similar to who(1),  but for all machines
     on the local network.  If no report has been received from a machine for
     11 minutes then rwho assumes the machine is down, and does not report
     users last known to be logged into that machine.

     If a user hasn't typed to the system for a minute or more, then rwho re-
     ports this idle time.  If a user hasn't typed to the system for an hour
     or more, then the user will be omitted from the output of rwho unless the
     -a flag is given.

     /var/rwho/whod.*   information about other machines

     finger(1),  rup(1),  ruptime(1),  rusers(1),  who(1),  rwhod(8)

     The rwho command appeared in 4.3BSD.

     This is unwieldy when the number of machines on the local net is large.
