How to get uptime for a Windows service

April 1st, 2014

Needed to know the uptime of a service on a Windows 2012 server to verify that the suggested solution for restarting all Splunk Universial Forwarders did work, see

Solution found here /, did make some minor adjustments to the vbscript as shown below.


strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * From Win32_Service WHERE displayname = 'SplunkForwarder'")
For Each objService in colServices
    intProcessID = objService.ProcessID
    Set colProcesses = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
        ("Select * From Win32_Process Where ProcessID = " & intProcessID)
    For Each objProcess in colProcesses
        Wscript.Echo objService.Name + "/" + objProcess.Name + " " + objProcess.CreationDate

Running it from the Powershell prompt like this PS D:\Temp> cscript.exe .\uptime.vbs
