Max uptime: 8 years, 122 days!
This weekend's In Other BSDs
the DragonFly BSD Digest
an interesting discussion
in which a NetBSD system with 8-year uptime is introduced. Quoting
from the ~October 2013 article:
`` I set up a dialup gateway for a company with NetBSD 1.3 in 1998 on a compaq pentium 90 desktop with 32MiB of RAM. I got a call last year (!) from the owner saying it stopped working suddenly. Pulled the disk on it and plugged it into an IDE/USB adapter and looked at the syslog as I had no ps2 keyboard and it didn't have USB.
Suspected hardware failure at that age.
Max uptime: 8 years, 122 days!''
The article goes on about what the machine was used for, and a bunch
of lessons learned.
Have a look and learn!
