I am looking for some creative ideas for looking at uptime for servers. Specifically what we are doing now, is to log onto the server and click on the network connection to determine how long the server (network connection) has been up. Since we typically do not have switch failures on our servers, this is a pretty accurate representation of how long since last reboot.
I would like to find a utility that will grab this information for me from various servers. Possible I could even do this in MMC?
I get an alert from the UPS when power goes out and if the servers are taken down, so I am not worried about power outages or website hits or anything fancy. I would like to be able at a glance to see how long since a server was rebooted (or rebooted itself in the case of a power loss, etc.)
