Admin Server Uptime

A rather marginal piece of trivia…

It is possible to obtain the uptime for the Admin server component of a FileMaker 11/12/13 Server using a URL (replace the host name as necessary). For FMS 11 & 12

and for FMS 13

The response is a small XML document

Admin Server Uptime Screenshot

(the date format is mm/dd/yy irrespective of the system locale).

Not all browsers will display the raw XML. If you see a blank page then either view the source for the page or, try the XML View Plugin for Safari (OS X only) or Firefox.

The Admin server, which is started and stopped by fmserver_helperd when it is started or stopped, can be launched or shutdown from the command line using

fmsadmin -y start|stop adminserver
