Seriously though, chasing uptime is cool but really not a good idea. It often hides serious boot misconfiguration. Who needs to write a boot script when the service you manually started 300 days ago is still running? Until the reboot day comes and everything explodes. Perhaps we even need to have mandatory reboot days in every month. #uptime #libreops
@niconiconi I patch & reboot quarterly, no exceptions.
I also patch & reboot if needed for security updates.
@niconiconi Personally, I consider that three months is a good uptime to reboot. That’s practical because htop add a (!) to the uptime when it’s over 100 days :D
@niconiconi I heard some servers would have broken physical components that are only relied on during boot time, so it runs like a zombie just fine in several years until it doesn't for good and all. the ultimate trap 🤣
