You can check the uptime of your Windows® Server® from the command line by running either the net statistics server or the systeminfo command.

Use the net statistics server command

In addition to uptime, the net statistics server command also displays statistics for the system, such as the number of files that are being accessed, systems errors, permission violations, password violations, and the total uptime since the last time the server was restarted. Use the following steps to check server uptime by using the net statistics server command:

  1. Connect to your cloud server on the command line.
  2. Type net statistics server and press Enter.

    Note: You can also shorten this command to net stats srv.

  3. Look for the line that starts with Statistics since, which indicates the date and time when the uptime started.

Use the systeminfo command

The systeminfo command reports the following additional information about the operating system (OS) that is installed on the server:

  • Host Name
  • OS Name
  • OS Version
  • Original Install date
  • System Boot Time
  • System Time
  • Timezone
  • Total Physical Memory
  • Virtual Memory: Max Size
  • Virtual Memory: Available
  • Virtual Memory
  • Network Card

Use the following steps to check server uptime by using the systeminfo command:

  1. Connect to your cloud server on the command line.
  2. Type systeminfo and press Enter.
  3. Look for the line that starts with Statistics since, which indicates the date and time when the uptime started.
