uptime - show how long the system has been up


The uptime command prints the current time, the length of time the system has been up, and the average number of jobs in the run queue over the last 1, 5 and 15 minutes. It is, essentially, the first line of a w(1) command.

Below is an example of the output uptime provides:

example% uptime

w(1), who(1), attributes(7), whodo(8)

who -b gives the time the system was last booted.
