Meanwhile, the Linux server ran so well that most of us forgot it was even there.
First time I heard the "reboot every night to prevent problems" was when I worked for a large company that only worked with Unix servers. They used various unix flavors and had 300 developers of which most only did server side work.
Before then, I was running Windows 2000 servers in a high-availability (HA) web site (for both the web servers using IIS and Windows Load Balancing and for the application servers between them and the SQL Server cluster).
I was careful to run only software that was tested for Windows 2000 (especially the drivers!) and made sure our in-house software did not have memory leaks. Our coding standards required checking log files, disk space, deleting log files of a certain age, etc.
We never had any lockups or failures with them. They passed all the HA tests we did. Management was quite easy.
Agreed! You're right about using approved drivers and well written software!
Also, writing automatic pruning code for log files, archived transactions, etc... is always a good measure.
My ActiveSync and all other services were still running as flat as they were by the time the 1000th client connected.
When the marketing guy saw this, he was astounded, and asked what kind of activity had been occurring.
Some of the stats that I recall from that demo...
Almost 200,000 original emails sent (averaging 30% with attachments of various sizes).
Around 50,000+ Replies
Around 30,000+ Forwards
over 650,000 deliveries to recipients (list bifurcation)
around 250,000 or so items moved between folders.
around 300,000 ItemOperations Fetch calls
1/4 million or so Deletes
1.5 millions Global Address List searches
In general, the numbers were huge compared to what most of our SMB market customers ever see. My ActiveSync testing script behavea similar to the client type they are to impersonate ie., Androids, iOS (UGH!), Windows Phones, Outlook, etc...
After that, he was all excited about showing customers five 9's I guess he thought we didn't have it in us! LOL!
Quit horsing about!
He's financially stable, so it was probably a spur of the moment thing - it's a bit much to blame it all on him, he was probably saddled with the meat. While I appreciate your unbridled enthusiasm, perhaps we should rein it in?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Let's not take a blinkered approach. I'm champing at the bit for someone to stirrup some more puns although I don't want to end up in hock to them. I might snaffle some of the better ones for myself. The pun quality has been good in the mane considering most of them were created on the hoof.
I don't do anything in prolonged, direct sunshine anymore. If I work outside it is in the morning and late afternoon. During August, when it is the hottest, and most humid, I turn into a vampire and only come out at night.
