Uptime Championships - Current champion: BLOOM

#1 Post by donald »

I have a media server in my rack that has to be retired, it has provided years of service and reliability and has endured years of abuse but now the fans are failing, it's out of space, and we can hear the remaining 2 fans left working whining up to compensate for the heat. It's being migrated but I looked at its uptime and thought it was impressive but I can't be the only person tracking and proud of longevity... so post a system uptime!

That server:
donald@host:~$ uptime
06:23:05 up 282 days, 19:27, 5 users, load average: 1.10, 1.06, 1.05

Current desktop:
[donald]@{localhoster}
[~]:> uptime
06:24:25 up 3 days, 12:40, 4 users, load average: 1.48, 1.48, 1.45

My longest uptime for any server in my career was 7 years.

I've posted some decent uptimes before...I think I've got a few years a few times and was indeed proud. I've changed my mind! I try to enforce a 'courtesy reboot' every so often, months instead of years. I might even air it out a bit since I'm in a dirty dusty environment. Formerly at high altitudes, power supplies and spinning drives don't cool well.

Code: Select all

$ uptime
 07:42:50 up 45 days, 18:34,  1 user,  load average: 2.61, 2.48, 2.39

I had occasion to reboot one of my dhcp/dns servers a couple of weeks ago (adding more disk for it's nighttime backup staging server duties).
It had been up for 625 days.

My current uptime usually depends on how often I reboot to Windows to play RDR2. :mrgreen:

I like the inxi tool, never used it before. You beat me by 2 days haha.

Not a bad idea with the screen captures to verify the stated uptimes.

It is easy to get false results from uptime.

I did it the first time by accident, the bios battery of my pc had died, I used ntpdate-debian to get right time. After that uptime was many years.

I was wondering when someone would point that out :lol:, for now lets use the honor system and 'inxi -Fxz' with a screencap for the champion.

Currently reigning: Bloom.

When I spent a lot of time on linuxmint.com forums in 2018, they always asked for a print from inxi.. no matter what you asked about, so that's the way I came in contact with that program.
It gives a pretty okay overview of the hardware, kernel and so on.. perfect if someone need help and need to describe hardware and so.

:wink: 2 days is nothing, we are equal side by side when dealing with so many days. :mrgreen:
I can't compete against those who have servers.. But it is a laptop, so I can see it a bit as I lead the laptop league. :lol: hahaha :lol:
