Uptime.exe, a standalone program, is available for displaying system availability. Uptime.exe can be used to display the current uptime of the local or remote system. Optionally, it can also scan the Event log for key system events such as system restart or computers that are not responding (hanging). Where possible, it also calculates system availability. It is primarily intended for Windows NT Server 4.0 Service Pack 4 or later, though it operates in limited fashion on earlier versions.
About This Utility
This utility is most accurate when run with administrator privileges, however, even without administrator privileges, the utility attempts to make a best estimate based on available information. In all cases, the results should be considered estimates.
It is important to note that the uptime and availability measurements reflect the local view of the operating system only. The "Total Uptime" measurement refers to the sum of all the time during the measured period where the operating system reported itself to be in normal operation. It does not reflect times when the server might be unavailable for other reasons, such at network outages.
It is also important to note that although the operating system is functioning normally, this does not mean that the server programs running on that server are operating normally. For instance, the operating system may be available, but a database running on that server may not be operating correctly.
