Kernel Update [06/17/2010]


Recommended Posts

We will be updating the Neptune server kernel to the latest version on Thursday June 17th between 9:00am EDT and 12:00pm EDT. We estimate this will result in about 10 minutes of down time while the server reboots. Even though we're running Ksplice to minimize reboots we like to do an update every time there is a major operating system update. In this case CentOS 5.5 was released so we'd like to run the latest 5.5 kernel to get any non security related improvements which Ksplice does not do as it's strictly for security updates.

Date: 06/17/2010

Start time (EDT): 9:00am

End time (EDT): 12:00pm

Duration: 3 hours

Estimated Down Time: 10 minutes
