Maybe a 'dumb' question, but I can't figure it out. I can't tell from the logs since they are periodically truncated, so how can I tell when the system was last restarted?

I would like to know the period of time that a dmv has been updating a particular view.

Your help is most appreciated.

look at the create date for the tempDB database. that should give you an idea :)

here is the query for a sql 2005 instance

SELECT [Name] , CrDate as DateServerRebooted
from sys.sysdatabases
WHERE dbid = 2
