The Usual Tech Ramblings

Massive Uptimes, or the failure of them...

The Nubby Admin has a great post on uptimes, and the old fascination of having a large uptime1. Okay, you can get your minds out the gutter now, not that kind of up time. We’re talking servers here.

The post covers a hidden fear, and the goods and bads of large server uptimes. A good read, and one you should look at if you’re watching your server rolling over into the third year of being running. I get a mention (well more of a quote), and seem to fall in with the general crowd, large server uptimes are generally bad.

Go read, enjoy, learn something new from the great minds Wesley is surrounding himself with (myself excluded).

  1. Netcraft even has a page dedicated to it.
