User Commands 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 your network. If no report has been
received from a machine for 5 minutes, rwho assumes the
machine is down, and does not report users last known to be
logged into that machine.
If a user has not typed to the system for a minute or more,
rwho reports this idle time. If a user has not typed to the
system for an hour or more, the user is omitted from the
output of rwho unless the -a flag is given.
-a Report all users whether or not they have typed to the
system in the past hour.

rwho does not work through gateways.
The directory /var/spool/rwho must exist on the host from
which rwho is run.
This service takes up progressively more network bandwith as
the number of hosts on the local net increases. For large
networks, the cost becomes prohibitive.
The rwho service daemon, in.rwhod(1M), must be enabled for
this command to return useful results.
