Can someone explain what does uptime hours measurement?  Is it measuring the time someone has logged onto the machine and actively using it?

Uptime in the Device Inventory is how long it's been since the device last rebooted, as of the last inventory.

  • Thank you. When what does uptime for Date Range measures?
    • Where do you see that? I guess I'm not understanding the question.
      • This is in the reporting feature. There is daily amp connection time, uptime all time hours , uptime date range and uptime hours for date range selections.
For others' reference, those fields appear in the Device topic of a wizard-based report, under the heading of Daily AMP Connection Time.
I ran a report with those to determine what they measure.

Uptime All-Time Hours - This is the total uptime for the device, since its Inventory was created in KACE.

Uptime Date Range - This is the date range for the Uptime Hours for Date Range metric.  This can be set using the Uptime Measurement Date (ex. I set my report to > 10/1/2018, so it will be the uptime for devices since 10/1/2018)

Uptime Hours for Date Range - The amount of uptime for a device, based on the criteria set in the Uptime Measurement Date filter.  If this filter is not used, it reports all uptime, so it will be equal to Uptime All-Time Hours.

Hope that helps!
