Method to check uptime on lpar:s

We want to find out if a method to check uptime on many (100:s) of SLES partitions could be implemented in the HMC. Basically performing the #uptime command and cathing the output for all of them. An alternative is of course to script it and doing it from one lpar but we want to know if it could be done from the HMC.
