Uptimed 0.3.17

An uptime daemon (logs your best uptimes).
Uptimed is an uptime daemon (logs your best uptimes).

Uptimed project was created by Robert John Kaper but is now maintained by me because Robert is overwhelmed by work.

Instead of using a pid file to keep sessions apart from each other, it uses the system boot time.

Uptimed has the ability to inform you of records and milestones through syslog and e-mail, and comes with a console front end to parse the records, which can also easily be used to show your records on your Web page.

Uptimed was inspired by a similar utility called 'ud', but is completely different by design. Instead of using PID files to prevent multiple instances, Uptimed uses the system boot time to seperate log entries from each other. This is believed to be more reliable when switching runlevels or accidentely killing Uptimed or running multiple instances of it.


Type './configure && make'. This should create two binaries, 'uptimed' and 'uprecords'. Make sure you use GNU make on BSD systems, often installed as 'gmake'.

If the source does not compile, send a message to uptimed-devel@lists.capsi.com with the compile errors. Of course you are free to send some patches as well.
