NAME

uptimed - daemon to record uptime records
 

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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.
 

OPTIONS

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

Write PID to pidfile <file>
-e <email>
Send mail to <email> at milestones/records
-i <interval>
Use <interval> seconds for loop
-m <count>
