  • My Mail/Web server at the house just passed 1 year of uptime.

    11:04am up 367 days, 19:11, 3 users, load average: 0.12, 0.16, 0.10

    We've had at least 5 power outages, none out lasting the UPS. It's really a shame, because I bought a larger UPS for this system a while back (10 months or so) and haven't had the heart to powerdown to move it over. Now I'm afraid what won't come back after a reboot, so I'm holding off for now, maybe I'll give it a shot after 2 years of uptime :)

    • Ah, uptime comparisons. I try to avoid them normally, but I was particularly chuffed when I got mailed the uptime of a box from a previous job, before it got made redundant. It was one of the first things that I set up for that company.
      % uptime
        2:51pm  up 1489 day(s),  2:45,  1 user,  load average: 0.02, 0.04, 0.04

      It's been running squid constantly for several hundred users since day 1. The OS is SunOS 5.6, so you can't have it all. ;-)

      • I am not really so concerned about the uptime, but the fact that it is still doing what is supposed to be doing pleases me. :)

        Maybe, in FreeBSD 8 or so (isn't that one code named SkyNet?) we won't even be needed.
