|Name||Name of the server application.|
|Version||Component version of the server application.|
|Platform||Platform specifier of the server operating system.|
|Clock||Server's current time, expressed in the local timezone of the system running mtping.|
|Clock Skew||Difference between Clock and the local system time. Note that high network latency may cause this to display ±1 even if the clocks are perfectly synchronized. See "System Clock Accuracy" for important information about keeping clocks accurate.|
|Delimiter||Path delimiter the server will use in directory listings.|
|Load||Number of concurrent transactions currently running, highest value since the last configuration change, the highest value since server startup, and the total number of transactions attempted since startup.|
|Up Time||Time since the server was started.|
|Config Time||Time since the last configuration change.|
|Idle Time||Time since the last transaction.|
|Errors||Number of server errors, transaction failures, warnings, and transaction rejections since startup. See the servedat Monitoring section for details.|
Note that a query via mtping does not count as a transaction for the purposes of server capacity or idle.
