uptimed - Man Page

daemon to record uptime records


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


Show usage


Create bootid and exit. This option is ignored on BSD systems, because the BSD kernel keeps a static boot time variable in memory so Uptimed does not need to cache this value.

-p <file>

Write PID to pidfile <file>

-e <email>

Send mail to <email> at milestones/records

-i <interval>

Use <interval> seconds for loop

-m <count>

Log a maximum of <count> entries

-t <timespec>
