Record Uptime? 160 Days
I have an old MacBook that I use as a server of sorts, and as a third screen when working from home. I realized I hadn’t rebooted the machine in a while when I went to check Software Update, so like any geek I went to the Terminal to check system uptime.
This is a record uptime of 160 days with no rebooting.
At the very least it’s a personal record. Now I know in the server world long uptimes aren’t unusual. But 160 days is half a year! And this is a consumer operating system! I think this has to be some sort of record uptime for Mac OS X.
This isn’t even Mac OS X Server, this is just a standard Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard installation. The last time the machine needed to be rebooted was to install 10.6.3, how’s that for stability?
