I am creating a render farm over a network that has around 400 computers on it. One issue that I need to solve before I can really get started though is how do get a list of all computers on the network and their status... ie. Idle, logged in, ect. Also, how do I determine if they are running linux, OS X, or Windows. I am scripting this in the bash shell.

I am thinking rusers is the comand i need, but what do i feed in as the host?


PS- I think my first post was misplaced so I repost it here... sorry for the double post
