pcp-uptime — tell how long the system has been running


pcp [pcp options] uptime [-V/[--version]


pcp-uptime gives a one line display of the following information. The current time, how long the system has been running, how many users are currently logged on, and the system load averages for the past 1, 5, and 15 minutes.

When invoked via the pcp(1) command, the -h/--host, -a/--archive, -O/--origin, -Z/--timezone and several other pcp options become indirectly available.

The current version of pcp-uptime can be queried using the -V/--version option.


pcp-uptime is inspired by the uptime(1) command and aims to be command line and output compatible with it.
