Extreme uptime in the news

So, what's your current uptime?

Umm, like seven minutes I guess?

My router sometimes goes for a couple of days but I turn it off when I'm not at home to save power. Core 2 Xeons take a bit more juice than your usual router.

Do planned down-times not count against up-time?

Wow... 93 days on my workstation at work.

Planned downtime doesn't count as downtime due to failure, but it's not uptime either.
So planned downtime doesn't subtract from things like 99.999% uptime (five nines)

Router has the longest uptime, second by my server. I had to reboot server not long ago to apply kernel updates.

  • Main Server has been online for 13 days, 1 hour, 33 minutes
  • Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (Unifi Controller): 3 days, 22 hours, 56 minutes
  • pfSense Router: 115 Days, 16 Hours, 55 Minutes, 42 Seconds
  • LG G5: 95 hours, 7 minutes
  • Workstation: 4 hours, 39 minutes, 46 seconds

Alexandria (file server): 560 days
pmx-node01 (proxmox compute node): 35 days
pmx-node02 (another compute node): 12 days
pmx-node0[3-6]: off
cerberus (router/firewall): 65 days
bastion (work laptop): 36 days
smaug (skylake passthrough rig): 4 days

I only keep cluster nodes on as needed. node01 runs important services, node02 through node06 are used for projects like emulating an openstack environment, jenkins build service, etc... Work laptop needs to be shut down when I travel because the battery really only lasts 6 hours. I do not hibernate it since I've got NVMe m.2 drives in it, so there's really no point. Smaug gets shut down regularly because I'm always testing passthrough configuration and whatnot.

I pulled some Cisco 2500 series switches last year that had been up for 7 years.


OH, I smell a vulnerable router.

How so? does 2.3.2 have any vulnerabilities? It is running the latest stable version and hasn't had any updates recently.

We decomissioned all of our old SUN sparc servers, they had uptimes in the thousands (days), now one of our old internal mail relays takes the cake:

But his time is also nearly up! can't wait to delete it finally...

Hey Seeker, trying to catch up to you on a separate matter. Anyway to contact you directly?

2 days

longest is 556 days

Sadly just rebooted my own server :frowning: up 1 day, 23 hours, 3 minutes

Ah, holdon a minute. My other server has been up 85 Days! Whoah!

61 Days on a raspberry pi until I accidentally unplugged it from my routers usb port
