    wow 1950 days or 5.34 years ! That's longer than this forum has been online !

    Guess kernel live patching is used for kernel updates ? :)

    No, it fell off the patching radar a few years back, and hasn't been rebooted. The server was built for me by someone else, but now I'm in the Unix team, I get to actually support it as well. It's EOL, I just can't bring myself to power it down.

    Great post and great examples of server uptime!
    Mission critical offline-to-the-internet servers are the bom in terms of uptime:).
    To bad i can't upload uptime images as part of non disclosure.

    Found this from a post I made on WHT back in 2011:

    Code:
    CAN50C uptime is 8 years, 31 weeks, 6 days, 6 hours, 57 minutes
    System returned to ROM by tacacs+
    System restarted at 01:34:33 EDT Thu May 15 2003
    System image file is "flash:c2600-is-mz.122-13"
    One of our Cisco 2600's out in Japan. We eventually decommissioned it in 2015

    The problem with Cisco hardware: They run without problems for years (we certainly also have some running for several years).

    But if you want to restart them some day they don't come up again with a faulty chip and you will have to replace them instantly. Happened twice for us.

    We have automated config backups, plus 4 hour SLA from Cisco for hardware replacement, and we've had to use it many a time. Even swapping out huge half rack 7609's
