Hello all,

I had an idea. We have a challenge to see who here can get the most uptime.

How to:


  • Open a terminal window and type uptime -q 

  • Press the printscreen/system request key to screenshot of the result.

  • Upload to a site like imgur and insert the image.


My current result: screenshot-from-2016-07-28-18-01-18.png

example1@example:~$ uptime -p
up 11 hours, 44 minutes

From a VM I'm working in ATM. It would appear I'm on the low side.

Back when I was running a folding@home client, could put up an impressive number for 3 PC's, over 5 months w/out updating! Had to quit, the electric bill got too high with the A/C also running hard. :P

 

No need to update an OS that's used for nothing else, may trigger a system reboot requirement, defeating the purpose of a 24/7 folding client & possibly corrupting an ongoing work unit. If truly needed, best to wait until the WU is complete & pause the client. These runs on LInux Mint much better than W7, more WU's completed, more points per day or PPD. To this day, am still inside of the top 20,000 donors & mighty close to 19,000. Took a lot of work, both the CPU & GPU were folding separate WU's at 90% usage, if I had the hardware I now have, would had been more, these were on GDDR3 GPU's.

Though the power went out for half a day, and so did the battery of my UPS in 15-20 minutes. For now though....... :)

@all

 

  • Open a terminal window and type uptime -q 

Typo, should be "uptime -p". There is no "-q" option. At least not on the version I have.

 

@Captain_Chicken

 


New record!


up 3 weeks, 1 day, 18 hours, 45 minutes

 

Impressive! Home computer, or a server?

 

@all

 

Here's my latest:

example1@example:~$ uptime -p
up 23 minutes

See that my prior post was deleted, so will follow up with a shorter one. 

 

That Netware server was given up on, it was posted in the article that the machine was caked with dust (one can clean on the run), no wonder it was getting noisy, the heat was building up like mad. Had they truly wanted to, could had broken the 20 year mark with some TLC about 5 years earlier. :)

 

My suspicions are that (obviously if the article is read), they had long given up & was waiting for it to die and since it refused to, pulled the plug before it happened for pride. I mean, what does one expect when a machine is not cleaned regular when ran at 24/7, even Home users should perform a really good dusting once or twice yearly.
