View Full Version : Post your best up-time

November 19th, 2005, 02:19 AM
Read a post where someone was asking about uptime on a linux system and that got me wondering as I useually shudown when I go out incase something happenes to the hardware while im gone had a fan problem a while back. I think the longest I had Linux going is almost a month before a power outage shut it down. Please post you best uptimes and reason of shutdown such as powerfailrure etc.

6 days- the joy of running batteries half the time!

(I don't count hibernation....)

nothing much. A bit more than 3 weeks probably for my server.

This is mainly because of :
-moving my pc's around
-switching of light bulbs or something (for some reason each couple of weeks they wanna turn the power off)
-I had a broken network card once
-I had provider issues a couple of times and I double checked by rebooting (which turned out to be irrelevant to the problem)
-I accidentally shutdown the network card remotely a couple of times (for example during configuring of traffic shaper)
-sometimes a reboot is easier than figuring out some strange problem (primarily when I wasn't very used to Ubuntu yet)
-sometimes I want to reboot for a new kernel
-took it down to conserve power once
-took it down for my girlfriend once (didn't like the noise)
-power outage once

12 hours when I leave the computer on all night uploading or downloading torrents. Other then that, I turn my computer off when I dont use it.

My Windows Server 2003 (Yes...I need to stop being lazy and migrate it to linux.) webserver has been up for about a month. Last reboot was a power failure, but it turns on automatically after the power comes on again. Pretty good uptime for a windows box ;)

My main computer gets hibernated whenever I'm not going to use it for a while, so basically only bedtime.

my desktop has been up and running for a long time....the longest I've had it up was 64 days...took it down for upgrades...I occasionally shut down to conserve power...otherwise it would never go down....

Never had a single crash...
