RE: vmstat -s "boot time" Redhat Linux

That is the actual time in seconds since the epoch (unix time) that the machine was started. It's stored in /proc/stat, and vmstat just grabs the raw value and displays it with a slightly better label (it's btime in /proc/stat).
So, in other words, take that unix time, convert it to a human-readable time, adn you've got when the machine was booted.

Anyone know what the value "boot time" is suppose to measure?
