    Hi all,

    Was wondering tonight how to tell remotely how long my server had been up, and found this from Microsoft. So far, working fine on Win2k Server and XP Pro, so would appear to be pretty all current versions of Windows-compatible.

    uptime.exe - copy to C:\windir, and run from a CLI.

    Knowledge base article

    HTH :)

    EDIT: I don't have a w2k3 server here, so if someone who does could test it, it may be useful for future reference.

    Sample output:

    Code:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>uptime /s
    Uptime Report for: \\OUTPOST
    
    Current OS: Microsoft Windows 2000, Service Pack 4, Uniprocessor Free.

    I'll going to give it a try on win2k pro, however this nifty tools works on

    • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4
      • Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
      • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Edition
      • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4
      • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4

      but haven't got w2k3 server on a live machine

    To find out about 'net' commands do 'net help' in a cmd box.

    There is a wide collection of stuff you can do with it!

    Taking this to the next level I thought it would be nice to be able to present something graphical with all the metrics created by uptime.exe

    It's the sort of thing that management love to be able to drop into board meetings.............

    This link below is very helpful, although both of the additional bits of software are no longer available, although there are alternatives if you can use Google :D

    With a bit of CSS and tidying up it could a lot look better than this:

    Er - it does:

    That's when the workstation server started, which is pretty close after the machine boots.

    Now before people get picky I'll point out that if you do a net stop and a net start then that time gets reset. So, yes, it *might* not be the correct uptime. But then, on the other hand, how many times have you done a net stop and start on that service? :biggrin

    Harry.

    :p

    Perhaps not - but might depend on what you want!

    You will have realized, I'm certain, that most of the output from the uptime util is fished straight out of the system log, so it is more a convenience util.

    On a slightly different note, I sometimes wonder just what lies behind most people wanting the 'uptime' rather than the date/time of the last boot.

    The uptime figure all too often gets used in willy-waving contests as to who has the most stable server (OK - I'll indulge - the 'best' server I admin has an uptime of 1011 days, with two others close behind). I'm usualy more interested in *when* was the last reboot - because I want to know why it did and match it with other logged events.

    Just me going off on one of my rants.... :biggrin

    Harry.
