uptimed.conf - The configuration file for uptimed(8)
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.
# Maximum number of entries in logfile. Set to 0 for unlimited.
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:
Interval to write the logfile with in seconds, e.g. 60.
Maximum number of entries in logfile, e.g. 50. Set to 0 for
Minimum uptime that must be reached to be considered a record.
Minimum uptime before sending out e-mail.
Minimum position in uptime ranking before sending out e-mail.

sendmail(8) compatible MTA installed as /usr/lib/sendmail. You
can enable this with SEND_EMAIL or with the -e option on the
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
Command to call a sendmail compatible mailer, e.g.
Path to store PID file, e.g. /var/run/uptimed
Configurable milestones. Syntax is pretty easy:
MILESTONE=time:description. Keep in mind that the description
needs to fit in the window.
