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
              MILESTONE=200d:two hundred days
              MILESTONE=250d:250 days
              MILESTONE=300d:three hundred days
              MILESTONE=50w:fifty weeks
              MILESTONE=1y:one year
              MILESTONE=400d:four hundred days
              MILESTONE=500d:five hundred days
              MILESTONE=100w:hundred weeks
              MILESTONE=750d:750 days
              MILESTONE=1000d:thousand days
