NAME

  uptime - Shows how long a system has been running

SYNOPSIS

  uptime [-m]

  The uptime command displays the current time,	the amount of time since the
  system was last started, the number of users logged into the system, and
  the load averages.

OPTIONS

  -m  Prints the Mach factor instead of	the load average.

DESCRIPTION

  The display of the uptime command is identical to the	heading	of a w com-
  mand display.

  The load average numbers give	the number of jobs in the run queue for	the
  last 5 seconds, the last 30 seconds, and the last 60 seconds.	The Mach fac-
  tor is a variant of the load average,	given for the same intervals; the
  closer its value to 0, the higher the	load.
