Note that the property StartTime is when the server was started. There is not an equivalent property for when the database file was started as far as I know.

The SYSHISTORY table should have this information. Look for the LAST_START operation.

Ok...thank you!

Note: SYSHISTORY has been introduced in ASA 9.0.1. Generally, and for older versions, you can also query the according server property via

SELECT property('StartTime');

That's even easier IMHO.
