kernel log format in /var/log/kern.log
 
Dear All,

In the file /var/log/kern.log, I see kernel logs in the following format,

Oct 6 11:18:30 machine kernel: [ 212.443755] Some logs...

What are the numbers in the bracket [212.443755] stands for?

Thanks and regards,
Srinivas

does [212.443755] denote time in sec.microsec format?
does [212.443755] denote time elapsed from last reboot of the machine?
