uptimed [ -?bv ] [ -e <email> ] [ -i <interval> ] [ -m <count> ]


This manual page documents the uptimed program.

uptimed is a daemon that records statistics about a machine's uptime. Use the uprecords(1) program to get uptime record statistics.


These command-line options override settings in the configuration file /etc/uptimed.conf
