Command


SYNOPSIS

uptime [-S hostname] [-ms] [-s] [-m] [-h] [-d] [-H]


DESCRIPTION

The uptime utility displays a one line summary of the following:

The uptime is normally displayed in days, hours, and minutes as appropriate. However, various options let you view the uptime only in days, hours, seconds, or milliseconds, as needed.

The current time is the local time and is displayed in hh:mmmmmam/pm format.

The displayed number of sessions is the number of current user connections to the systems.

Each of the load averages is the average of the number of processes in the processor queue over the given length of time. This feature is not currently implemented; all load averages are displayed as 0.00.

On 7/2008R2/8/2012/10/2016, you can use the -S to determine this same information for a remote 7/2008R2/8/2012/10/2016 machine. To do so, you must have administrator access rights for the remote machine.
