NAME
  uptime - Shows how long a system has been running

SYNOPSIS

  uptime [-m]

  The uptime command displays the current time, the amount of time since the
  system was last started, the number of users logged into the system, and
  the load averages.

FLAGS

  -m  Prints the Mach factor instead of the load average.

DESCRIPTION
  The display of the uptime command is identical to the heading of a w com-
  mand display.

  The load average numbers give the number of jobs in the run queue for the
  last 5 seconds, the last 30 seconds, and the last 60 seconds.	 The Mach
  factor is a variant of the load average, given for the same intervals; the
  closer its value to 0, the higher the load.
