RIP ns2

Today we did shutdown our now oldest running Gentoo Linux production server : ns2.

Obviously this machine was happily spreading our DNS records around the world but what’s remarkable about it is that it has been doing so for 2717 straight days !

$ uptime
 13:00:45 up 2717 days,  2:20,  1 user,  load average: 0.13, 0.04, 0.01

As I mentioned when we did shutdown stabber, our beloved firewall, our company has been running Gentoo Linux servers in production for a long time now and we’re always a bit sad when we have to power off one of them.

As usual, I want to take this chance to thank everyone contributing to Gentoo Linux ! Without our collective work, none of this would have been possible.

    1. Yes, another Gentoo Linux host using PowerDNS now instead of bind 😉

    2. I still am wondering that you didnt update your kernel for all those years ?
