Freebie Monday Prize Awarded – 137 days of Uptime? That’s all?!

Last Monday the 6th’s Freebie Monday giveaway of a free Transcender practice exam has been won by a certain SysAdmin named Tim. His winning submission is a Nagios control panel screenshot of an HP DL360 Windows server with just over 137 days of uptime:

Two things are encouraging about this entry. 1) 137 days of uptime isn’t heinous by comparison to some other long in the tooth instances that almost all of us can think of, and 2) Tim has decided to create a Nagios warning that alerts him when any machine has 60 days of uptime and a critical warning at 90 days. Good job Tim!

Of course, perhaps there are plenty of people out there with vastly longer uptimes, but they just didn’t find a Transcender practice exam to be enough of an enticement for what could be considered public embarrassment.

Here’s to shorter  hardware uptimes and longer service uptimes!
