Is kernelcare worth it?

Kind of getting tired of constant security updates. Rebooting is always a bit stressful. Can only do that during off hours which adds to the stress.

So thinking of getting kernelcare. It's not too expensive but adds up if you have a lot of servers.

Curious what peoples opinions are about it.

  • Linux 4.0 will have rebootless kernel updates so in a year your problems will go away. If it's that much stress I'd say go ahead and pay for it, at least on the essential servers that require uptime.

    I would say 4.0 is several years away from anything we are doing. More likely we will be using Kpatch when we upgrade to CE7 in a year or two.

    Imo its not expensive at all it really does not add up unless you are talking hundreds and hundreds of servers and if you are they have a noc scale price system anyway and you get patches pre disclosure in some cases so yeah... Worth its weight in gold.

  • It's worth it.
