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.
