I need a perl script that can touch about 300 Solaris boxes, and read the logs and pull out the uptime for the box. I need to save these uptimes to a text file, with system name.

If I get it by Tuesday 2-29 the points double.

'ruptime' will give you uptime for all local servers, i.e., you don't reall y need perl to get just uptime.

what kind of permission/authentication scheme you have to allow you to access those 300 machines? If all permission granted, it is trivial to gather the info and present in a nice format.

I'm and NT person, and don't know a lot about Solaris..I'll check it out on Monday.

ruptime is from SUNWcsu (core Solaris (usr)) package.

Thanks for the info, I'll run the command on Monday and see if it gives back the information I need. I had done some research on it this morning, and checked on one of my systems and found it.
