uptime man page

uptime — tell how long the system has been running




uptime [OPTION]... [FILE]


Print the current time, the length of time the system has been up, the number of users on the system, and the average number of jobs in the run queue over the last 1, 5 and 15 minutes. Processes in an uninterruptible sleep state also contribute to the load average. If FILE is not specified, use /var/run/utmp. /var/log/wtmp as FILE is common.
