NAME

       uptimed.conf - The configuration file for uptimed(8)

DESCRIPTION

       uptimed.conf  contains  a  list  of  key-value  pairs  to configure the
       behaviour of uptimed(8), comments  start  with  #.   The  beginning  of
       uptimed.conf might look like the following:

              # Uptimed configuration file.

              # Interval to write the logfile with in seconds.
              UPDATE_INTERVAL=60

              # Maximum number of entries in logfile. Set to 0 for unlimited.
              LOG_MAXIMUM_ENTRIES=50

       The  variables  LOG_MINIMUM_UPTIMED,  MAIL_MINIMUM_UPTIME and MILESTONE
       expect a time unit which are encoded by a single letter.  h is used for
       hour,  d  is used for day, w is used for weeks and y is used for years.
       Default (nothings specified) is seconds.

       The default uptimed.conf is quite well commented so you should be  able
       to use it as a basis. The following keys are supported:

       UPDATE_INTERVAL
              Interval to write the logfile with in seconds, e.g. 60.

       LOG_MAXIMUM_ENTRIES
              Maximum  number  of  entries  in  logfile, e.g. 50. Set to 0 for
              unlimited.

       LOG_MINIMUM_UPTIMED
              Minimum uptime that must be reached to be considered a record.

       MAIL_MINIMUM_UPTIME
              Minimum uptime before sending out e-mail.

       MAIL_MINIMUM_POSITION
              Minimum position in uptime ranking before sending out e-mail.

       EMAIL  Email  address   to   mail   milestones/records   to.    Assumes
              sendmail(8)  compatible MTA installed as /usr/lib/sendmail.  You
              can enable this with SEND_EMAIL or with the  -e  option  on  the
              commandline.

       SEND_EMAIL
              Controls  if  email is sent. Use 0 if you never want an email, 1
              if you want emails for both milestones and  records,  2  if  you
              want  emails  only  for milestones and 3 if you want emails only
              for records.

       SENDMAIL
              Command   to   call   a   sendmail   compatible   mailer,   e.g.
              /usr/lib/sendmail -t.

       PIDFILE
              Path to store PID file, e.g.  /var/run/uptimed

       MILESTONE
              Configurable     milestones.     Syntax    is    pretty    easy:
              MILESTONE=time:description.  Keep in mind that  the  description
              needs to fit in the window.

   EXAMPLE FOR MILESTONE SETTINGS
              MILESTONE=5d:five days
              MILESTONE=10d:ten days
              MILESTONE=25d:twenty-five days
              MILESTONE=50d:fifty days
              MILESTONE=10w:ten weeks
              MILESTONE=75d:seventy-five days
              MILESTONE=100d:hundred days
              MILESTONE=150d:hundred and fifty days
              MILESTONE=25w:twenty-five weeks
