    I severely hope UptimeVPS uses ksplice.

    Currently: up 96 days, 8:17 from Prometeus closely followed by 84 days, 17:34 from Carstensz Pyramid Server.

    We should start a thing where the first post is actually derailing, so that the 2nd post bill derail from the derailment and bring everything back on track.

  • Ok everyone reboot all your VPSes and lets let this competition get going.

    join us on IRC - #lowendbox on irc.freenode.net

  • How about some independent proof of these claims? ;)

  • bobbybobby Member

    @JoeMerit Sup, Buzz Killington?

  • bobbybobby Member

    @sleddog like giving you root on all to check them?

  • TazTaz Disabled

    Seriously? No kernel updates? I wouldn't trust a provider with 1+ year uptime on a single server( cloud is acceptable) unless they can proove that they are using ksplice.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • A simple script like mine, in the bottom of the page :p

    <?php
    function linuxUptime() {
      $ut = strtok( exec( "cat /proc/uptime" ), "." );
      $days = sprintf( "%2d", ($ut/(3600*24)) );
      $hours = sprintf( "%2d", ( ($ut % (3600*24)) / 3600) );
      $min = sprintf( "%2d", ($ut % (3600*24) % 3600)/60  );
      $sec = sprintf( "%2d", ($ut % (3600*24) % 3600)%60  );
      return array( $days, $hours, $min, $sec );
    }
    
    $ut = linuxUptime();
    // If you would like to show the seconds as well just add [ , $ut[3] seconds ] after minutes.
    echo "Server Uptime: $ut[0] days, $ut[1] hours, $ut[2] minutes";
    ?>

    Don't need root to check uptime ;)

    You all are aware that server uptime doesn't mean anything right? Please provide network uptime if you want to compare something meaningful.

    Thanked by 1bamn
  • @KuJoe said: You **all **are aware that server uptime doesn't mean anything right?

    Maybe..maybe not. ;)

    To be honest now, never had over 2 months of overall uptime. Had around 1 year of hardware uptime on different providers, however network just tends to fail from time to time.

    Network uptime (hetzner) is also near perfection.

    OK, so starting Aug 1 PungCM is a contest ;) Providers have tomorrow to check/verify their IP, or submit to get listed. First prize is... bragging rights?

    Nah :) Network or server downtime would affect everyone equally. And there's two locations....

    My longest uptime is with Dreamserver.uk.com:

  • @eastonch said: IPXCore -- 100% Uptime as confirmed by PungCM - TAKE THAT BUYVM!

    And then they get dropped offline due to a 600Mbit DDoS or because 2.6.32 is complete horse shit. Take...that? Come on, don't pit me against @Damian, he's one of the few hosts around here that I actually like.

    Minus a few nodes with either a bad stick of RAM or the nodes we had to perform power maintenance (coresite requirement), the vast majority are in the 100 - 130+ day uptime mark. They'd be right around the 300 mark if we didn't choose to rebase all of our nodes to debian to future proof upgrades.

    Our website is under more floods than any hosting website on this whole community so the fact it stays up with minimal burps is pretty rockin' no?

  • @francisco I wasnt meaning to be offensive, or even aggressive there, it was the first host that popped into my head.

    Really like both providers, even though I don't currently have a BuyVM box at the moment.

    I've read all your blogs and posts about how you've managed to become pretty much DDoS proof. Quite an amazing feat, i'd love to see some graphs of "attempts". :']!

    @William said: Yea... i doubt that

    Our filtering service was down for about a day due to some failed hardware. Within 15 minutes of the route change our main website was getting ~1.5Gbit of UDP. Could people have noticed the route change that quickly? unlikely which makes me believe that we simply get a lot of burst floods from booters. The floods are never long, usually over within 5 minutes but it's nothing I really want to allow racking into our servers either :P Maybe we don't get flooded the most but before we put billing on a filtered IP we were getting hit every time we announced a stock run or simply hit 'for fun'. In fact our big stock run a few months back got postponed for a day while I got a server in place with awk. On our unfiltered side we place about ~150 nullroutes a month. Sure some are recurring (the same person getting a sustained flood), but it's still 150 nullroutes.

    @eastonch said: I've read all your blogs and posts about how you've managed to become pretty much DDoS proof. Quite an amazing feat, i'd love to see some graphs of "attempts". :']!

    Not flood proof, just protecting what we can along the path so there's less failure points. The one point I had to address a few weeks ago is one we knew of for over a year now but egi refused to help us address it. Once they were in a jam of 'nullroute his router or help him with what he wants' did they finally comply.

    We don't have graphs because awk doesn't even have them. They're a cool company but i've had a ticket requesting ACL adjustments for about a week now w/o a single reply. It makes me think I could simply not pay my invoice and he'd be too lazy to unplug it. I may need to just tell him I want to put my own switch w/ a fat pipe just for handling my own ACL's because this whole 'waiting' game is annoying as all hell. :(

  • @Francisco it's fine. And yeah, I assume you'll have alot of them "HF" skiddies using random $5 booters, trying to knock off websites that are hosted on your network.

    Do you ever feel the effect of it? Or does the filtering work quite well?

  • JackJack Member

    @eastonch said: does the filtering work quite well?

    Hell Yea! I use it personally for a friend of mine he was getting large floods.

    Fran is very helpful via IRC too.

    Depends on the ACL's in place on the client. If they didn't request them then yea, sometimes we'll feel some of it. I've tried to be 'nice' to justin and not ringing his private number I got to get these tickets done, but that'll change later today.

    If someone has UDP filtered and they get a UDP flood? won't feel it. They'd have to throw 10Gbit+/sec to a single IP to get any sort of 'Wow, thats a big flood!' kind of reaction.

    SYN Is always a hard one to deal with but I'm hoping the new revision of our filtering setup will help with that a lot more. I need to get a test bed online first though :)

    I'm off to bed, good night.

    I'd also like to pop in here to point out that we're not selling services to break records. If clients want to enter contests, that's fine, but keep in mind that our services will never achieve months of uptimes because we didn't get in the ksplice bandwagon, unfortunately, and we would rather have newer kernels.

    I am no longer affiliated with IPXcore.
  • And as we were talking about network uptime in the begining of this thread... Well, 150 of my IPs are unreachable, one whole vlan... Thank you Murphy. (bow)
