    Hi All,

    I am wondering if there are any free applications or small utilities out
    there that will allow you to poll your servers and systems that have
    uptime.exe on them and list the uptime of these systems and maybe in a column
    beside the systems hostname?

    I could see a utility like this being valuable for a quick glimpse and
    report of system availability and I dont see this as being something to
    difficult to do for someone inclined with programming.

    Does anything like this exist without getting into Enterprise level
    monitoring applications?

    Anyone? I know there are some scripts out there that will output some of
    these results to a file but I am looking for something a little more
    established and presentable.

  3. Hello a_user,

    You can create a batch file like uptime.bat with the content:

    uptime /s servername >C:\uptime.txt

    Place the uptime.exe and the batch file at the same location and run it.

    Best regards

    Hi Meinolf,

    During my playing around I came across this means of outputting the stats as
    you suggested below but I was really hoping to find an already created
    utility that would present a pleasant interface and output the results into
    an easily readable and understandable format.

    If anyone knows if anything like this exists please let me know.
