uptime command in Linux

If you want to find the duration of time a linux server is up or active, you can use uptime command
    uptime - tell how long the system has been running


       uptime [OPTION]... [ FILE ]


       Print  the current time, the length of time the system has been up, the number of users on the system, and the average number of jobs in the run queue over the last 1, 5 and 15 minutes.  If FILE is not specified, use /var/run/utmp.  /var/log/wtmp as FILE is common.

Prompt> hostname

Prompt:> uptime
 12:24pm  up 346 days  1:14,  3 users,  load average: 0.06, 0.07, 0.08
