  1. What does a long uptime do??


    I'm a junior system engineer and I already know that restarting a pc/laptop resolves about 50% of the issues users have.

    I Just had a user who worked with a docking, a laptop and two screens. both screens worked but only one showed up in the settings, there was a 5min difference between the two screens although they were connected to the same docking/laptop. I looked at the uptime and it was 36 days, did a reboot and the screens worked again.

    My question is more technical: What happens when you don't properly shut down your pc and put it in sleep mode?

    How come that over time programs start showing problems and errors.



    PS. Just had a user that had an uptime of 140 days!

    uptime

    Long periods of uptime for Linux is expected, but what about 600+ days of uptime on a Windows server?

    Yes, the server is still in use, no it is not connected to the internet. I had to power it down after taking this screenshot to clone a failing hard drive.

    uptime

    This is a production database server hosted in a data center in Chicago that I work on. No VPS here.

    The gateway in the office hasn't been up that long though. Occasionally the UPS' won't be enough to sustain the rack during prolonged power outages.

    Code: jdoane@gateway:~$ uptime 06:49:02 up 136 days, 14:02, 2 users, load average: 0.15, 0.06, 0.01[/quote]

    uptime

    Windows in general is very stable as long as you don't start doing a bunch of crazy shit with it. I use Win7 Pro for a few of my own servers as well as a few client's servers.

    My original Minecraft server ran on Win7 Pro and when I finally upgraded it and moved it, it had an uptime of over 300 days. And it ran Minecraft, Terraria, Apache Web Server, and an FTP server. The current Minecraft server is going on 80 days uptime, and it would be longer but I thought something I installed for Minecraft required a restart when I really didn't.
