Uptime

February 1st, 2007, at 9:00 am, I had to bring my server down due to a failing power supply. After reinstalling, it's been up for:

aaron@achiles:~$ uptime
 07:17:29 up 69 days, 22:18,  4 users,  load average: 0.49, 0.17, 0.11

Nothing spectacular, compared to many servers out there, I'm sure, but two months isn't bad. This is a server running Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06.1 LTS. Looking at my irssi uptime, it's similar:

/uptime
07:20 Irssi uptime: 63d 13h 53m 17s

What's your uptime?

    Upgraded irssi a while back and no, the kernel exploits since boot haven't affected this system ;). It will be time for a reboot soon for more RAM.

    That's spaceparanoids.org. Not very good, I know, but hey, that's the best I have right now. :)

    Tell the record in your next blog. I would love to use it in a presentation I am giving.

    Jason Brower- Good idea! I'll give this a day or two, then shutdown comments on this post, and forward comments to the next one. So far, 621 days is the record uptime. 2 years is pretty stinking good, IMO.

    I had over one year, but it was shutdown after 466 days due power malfunction :(

    "It will be time for a reboot soon for more RAM."
    Not sure if hibernating a machine is considered "cheating", but why not hibernate the machine during the hardware upgrade, then technically the uptime wont be interrupted.. Although I was never partiuclarly bothered about uptime, my Windows machine is generally on for about a week between reboots, and when I had my Linux server running, it was normally up just over a month between reboots

    A small complaint about the site : From the comments box, hitting tab jumps up to the header box, not the "Submit Comment", which is moderately annoying

    Well this is a UML instance from Linode.com. The plans have been upgraded several times but my instance has been running fine in the resources it had so not too much of a reason to reboot. By now though, all of those resources together will take this server from 256MB of RAM to 1024MB which is a nice increase. http://thegrebs.com/ is hosted on this UML server.

    All uptime means these days is that your server is more likely to be insecure.
