NAME

uptimed.conf - The configuration file for uptimed(8)

DESCRIPTION

uptimed.conf contains a list of key-value pairs to configure the behaviour of uptimed(8), comments start with #. The beginning of uptimed.conf might look like the following:
 
# Uptimed configuration file.
# Interval to write the logfile with in seconds. UPDATE_INTERVAL=3600
# Maximum number of entries in logfile. Set to 0 for unlimited. LOG_MAXIMUM_ENTRIES=500
The variables LOG_MINIMUM_UPTIMED, MAIL_MINIMUM_UPTIME and MILESTONE expect a time unit which are encoded by a single letter. h is used for hour, d is used for day, w is used for weeks and y is used for years. Default (nothings specified) is seconds.
The default uptimed.conf is quite well commented so you should be able to use it as a basis. The following keys are supported:
UPDATE_INTERVAL
Interval to write the logfile with in seconds, e.g. 60.
LOG_MAXIMUM_ENTRIES
Maximum number of entries in logfile, e.g. 50. Set to 0 for unlimited.
LOG_MINIMUM_UPTIMED
Minimum uptime that must be reached to be considered a record.
MAIL_MINIMUM_UPTIME
Minimum uptime before sending out e-mail.
MAIL_MINIMUM_POSITION
Minimum position in uptime ranking before sending out e-mail.
EMAIL
Email address to mail milestones/records to. Assumes sendmail(8) compatible MTA installed as /usr/lib/sendmail. You can enable this with SEND_EMAIL or with the -e option on the commandline.
SEND_EMAIL
Controls if email is sent. Use 0 if you never want an email, 1 if you want emails for both milestones and records, 2 if you want emails only for milestones and 3 if you want emails only for records.
SENDMAIL
Command to call a sendmail compatible mailer, e.g. /usr/lib/sendmail -t.
PIDFILE
Path to store PID file, e.g. /var/run/uptimed
MILESTONE
Configurable milestones. Syntax is pretty easy: MILESTONE=time:description. Keep in mind that the description needs to fit in the window.
