http://serverfault.com – I am trying to track when the server was rebooted or shutdown. I used w and uptime to see how long it's been up but also used last -x to get a log of times when the server went down. Here is the output: runlevel (to lvl 2) 2.6.26-2-686 Wed Sep 14 09:38 - 10:22 (00:43) reboot system boot 2.6.26-2-686 Wed Sep 14 09:38 - 10:22 (00:43) keenan pts/1 Tue Sep 13 16:07 - crash (17:31) keenan pts/1 Tue Sep 13 15:20 - 15:21 (00:01) keenan pts/2 Mon Sep 12 14:51 - 09:16 (18 (HowTos)
