w Displays who the present users are and what they are doing
w [-hin] [-M <core>] [-N <system>] [<user>]

w displays a summary of the current activity on the system, including what each user is doing. The first line displays the current time of day, how long the system has been running, the number of users logged in to the system, and the load averages. The load average numbers give the number of jobs in the run queue average over 1, 5, and 15 minutes.
The output fields are the user's login name, the name of the terminal where the user is logged on, the host from which the user is logged in, the time the user logged in, the time since the user last typed anything, and the name and arguments of the current process.
-h Suppresses the heading.
-i Sorts output by idle time.
-n Shows network addresses as numbers. Normally w interprets addresses and attempts to display them symbolically.
-M <core> Extracts values associated with the name list from the specified core instead of the default /dev/kmem.
-N <system> Extracts the name list from the specified system instead of the default /netbsd.
<user> If specified, restricts output to <user>.
