Node Uptime

I see a few users here have uptime of 1 year + on their nodes. I've tried to achieve but get OCD and so reboots to lower memory usage. How do you deal with memory leaks?

    I'm a habitual rebooter. Instead of locking my work PC I reboot it. Instead of logging off of a dev server I reboot it. If I uninstall a program I usually reboot it. The only time I don't reboot is after I install MS patches on my desktops... go figure. :D

    That being said my home NAS and router were nearing the 365 day uptime but I rebooted them to troubleshoot a network issue instead of doing the sensible thing and just disconnecting cables... oh well. :(

    Don't use the software with ones or restart only the leaking software.

    Btw,

  • I reboot our servers at least once a month. It's part of our contractual agreement with our datacenter.

    In return, the datacenter spends three hours on battery and/or generator once a month so we know that those works. Many datacenters who have such seem to have issues with getting them running when they're needed.

    You should be able to just restart the memory-hogging processes.

    Only the software that really leakes (like minecraft) needs to be restarted from time to time

  • All my VPSs never make it more than 2 months without a reboot due to kernel updates.

    I had around 50 days on my laptop but the battery died.

    But not your nodes...

    Sweet :)

    No, definitely not the nodes. I wish we never had replaced the PDU or the uptime would be 100+ days now. :(
