Awhile back there was some discussion about host uptimes. One host here
has just passed the 1/2 year mark of being up. (It is in an individual's
office and he does use it daily but he doesn't program. Mainly he uses
ZMAIL, TELNET, and Image-Calc.) Another host is up to the 5 month mark.
Our main file server/syshost was up 15 weeks until it crashed today. Four
other hosts have been up for 2 months or more. (We have about 31 hosts.)
On the negative side, we have one machine that has been down for about
3 weeks with a bad disk. (Yes, we are on full maintenance and they are
working on it, but still...)
We have a 3600 here in Twain Harte that (except for power outages)
stayed up for somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 years (RSK, Correct me
if I'm wrong). Of course the track record has gone down since the
installation of the IFU board set about 2 years ago but still it's a
very reliable machine. If it weren't for the power going out in the
winter around here we'd probably have some pretty amazing uptimes.
