如何记录 Linux 的系统运行时间的统计信息

Linux/Unix 系统管理员对服务器的系统运行时间有一种奇怪的痴迷。这里有一个关于这个主题的 xkcd 漫画,一个好的系统管理员是一股不可阻挡的力量,他伫立在你家猫咪博客的服务器之前,对抗黑暗势力。

我们可以使用 uptime 命令或 [w 命令]( "See Linux/Unix w command examples for more info") 或 top 命令来判断 Linux 系统运行了多久。我可以使用 tuptime 工具保留每次重新启动的运行时间,以获得系统运行时间的历史和统计报告

这就像 uptime 命令一样,但输出结果更令人印象深刻。最近我发现了另一种称为 uptimed 的工具,用于记录关于机器的系统运行时间和统计信息。让我们看看如何使用 Linux 操作系统上的 uptimeduprecords 来获得运行时间的记录统计信息。

查找系统运行时间非常简单,只需在基于 Linux 的系统上键入以下命令即可:

$ uptime -p
up 2 weeks, 4 days, 7 hours, 28 minutes

要保留有关 uptime 的历史统计信息,请使用 tuptimeuptimed 工具。

安装 uptimed

安装 uptimed 的最简单的方式是通过你的软件包管理器,比如 apt/apt-get/yum 这些你的 Linux 发行版的朋友。

在 Debian/Ubuntu Linux 上安装 uptimed

键入以下 [apt 命令]( "See Linux/Unix apt command examples for more info")/[apt-get 命令]( "See Linux/Unix apt-get command examples for more info"):

$ sudo apt-get install uptimed

在 CentOS/RHEL/Fedora/Oracle/Scientific Linux 上安装 uptimed

首先 在 CentOS/RHEL 使用 EPEL 仓库

$ sudo yum -y install epel-release

然后,键入以下 [yum 命令]( "See Linux/Unix yum command examples for more info"):

$ sudo yum install uptimed

如果你正在使用 Fedora Linux,运行以下 dnf 命令:

$ sudo dnf install uptimed

在 Arch Linux 上安装 uptimed

键入以下 pacman 命令:

$ sudo pacman -S uptimed

在 Gentoo Linux 上安装 uptimed

键入以下 emerge 命令:

$ sudo emerge --ask uptimed

如何配置 uptimed

使用文本编辑器编辑 /etc/uptimed.conf 文件,例如 vim 命令:

$ sudo vim /etc/uptimed.conf

最少设置一个 email 地址来发送记录。假定有个兼容 sendmail 的 MTA 安装在 /usr/lib/sendmail


如何在系统启动时启动 uptimed 服务?

使用 systemctl 命令启动 uptimed 服务:

$ sudo systemctl enable uptimed

我该如何 启动/停止/重启 或者查看 uptimed 服务的状态?

$ sudo systemctl start uptimed ## start it ##
$ sudo systemctl stop uptimed ## stop it ##
$ sudo systemctl restart uptimed ## restart it ##
$ sudo systemctl status uptimed ## view status ##

如何查看 uptime 记录

只需键入以下命令即可查看 uptimed(8) 程序的统计信息:

$ uprecords


Fig.02: uprecords in action

uprecords 有一些选项:

$ uprecords -?


usage: uprecords [OPTION]...

  -?             this help
  -a             do not print ansi codes
  -b             sort by boottime

  -i INTERVAL    use INTERVAL seconds for loop instead of 5, implies -f

这是一个极好的小工具,可以显示服务器正常运行时间的记录,以证明机器正常运行时间和你的业务连续性。在相关说明中,你可以看到官方的 XKCD 系统管理员 T恤 因为漫画被制作成衬衫,其中包括背面的新插图。
