Up Time Percentage

Platform:  mIRC
Published  Oct 31, 2011
Updated  Nov 01, 2011
This little snippet tracks mIRC's uptime as a percentage using the time mIRC has been open divided by the time since the script was started. It even protects against crashes by periodically saving the uptime.

Just load the snippet and type /uppercent to see how much of the time since you loaded the script mIRC has been running.

Example:
<pball> Uptime Percentage: 99.235506% since Mon Oct 31 23:50:49 2011
(49 seconds later)
<pball> Uptime Percentage: 99.24338% since Mon Oct 31 23:50:49 2011

You can watch your up time percentage increase the longer you've been up, assuming you aren't at 100%. Just know that once you drop below 100% it's impossible to reach 100% (theoretically at least, rounding will let you get 100% after long enough lol). /*

}

set %uptimepercent.up $calc(%uptimepercent.up + ($ctime - %uptimepercent.start))

}

alias uppercent {
say 7Uptime Percentage: $calc(100* ( %uptimepercent.up + ( $ctime - %uptimepercent.start )) / ( $ctime - %uptimepercent.beginning ) ) $+ % since $asctime(%uptimepercent.beginning)
}

Sorry, Yea you are right. But I fixed it :)

SReject the point is that $uptime will cause the initial time to be off, since it will be longer than the time script has been loaded unless you load the script when you start mirc up

napa182, I was just saying has has a fond admiration for jaytea is all, and then he called me a name. He has a constant period outbreak for no reason. I don't know why, but then when you look at his avatar, which shows a long, pissed-off face, and my comment, you'll begin to know why.

Thanks pball, I wish everybody could be as open minded as you. Let's all be happy, excluding the mad one up there, shall we?

P.S. I feel bad napa182 has to endure this unexpected ordeal and makes himself available for comment after being unavailable for a while.

I love how most of my scripts end up with more random comments that related ones ^_^

actually jaytea is right, he's my groupie. Which I'm not sure if that's good or bad. But I've scripted a bunch of stuff for him over the time I've known him.

I like the version pball made. It actually works.


you seem to like a lot of the things pball made ;P

That wouldn't work well for people who replace the exe to update like me. That also does online time verses uptime which is what I'm going more for. So if your internet goes off the online timer stops until you reconnect. Since I personally have mirc open all the time my computer is running.

edit:
slightly better example of why not to check mirc.exe creation date. many people use already setup clients and the creation date would be whenever that was originally setup

Could always look at the creation date of the mirc.exe file and compare it to the $online timer

I don't know if you tested that but I noticed a problem with your math, you don't want to subtract $ctime from $uptime in the first part of the math. You are also missing a ) at the end of your $calc statement.

Also this will provide incorrect results if you use $uptime. Because if you load this after mirc has been running the uptime will be larger than the time the script has been running. Which will result in an uptime of over 100% which is incorrect.

Example of loading script and showing output:
<~pballz> Uptime Percentage: 163157.5% since Tue Nov 01 17:59:08 2011
