command produces output similar to
but for the list of hosts or all machines on the local
network. For each host responding to the rusers query,

The following options are available:
Print all machines responding even if no one is currently logged in.
Print a long format listing. This includes the user name, host name,
tty that the user is logged in to, the date and time the user
logged in, the amount of time since the user typed on the keyboard,
and the remote host they logged in from (if applicable).
