Solaris Uptime

March 15, 2013

Why does it just tickle me to see some outrageous uptime on L’Unix servers?  I was just logged in to a remote Solaris server to help a user.  I didn’t know their username so just hit the “w(ho)” command real quick.  Then noticed the uptime – wow.  (and yes – double checked the date on the machine, just to be sure)

In this specific case it’s a Solaris 10 x86 box:

Solaris 10 x86 server named "gwinnett" uptime

Solaris 10 x86 server named “gwinnett” uptime

621 Days!  I’ve actually seen 4 years before on Solaris 10.  It speaks volumes that you have the ability to do patches and package management while the server stays in production.  Throw in some reliable HVAC and power and they just keep going    . . .    and going   . . .   and going.

To find out information about the system you are logged onto:

uname -a

To check uptime you can just type

uptime

Simple!  Cheers,
Mike
