Unix Tip #4303- December 22, 2012
It is always good to give yourself
enough time to perform an outage.
One good rule is to use the simple
formula: Length + 1/2 Length.
If your outage will take 1 hour
call the outage for 1.5 hours.
If you outage will take 4 hours
get a 6 hours window for the outage.
This will provide negotiating
room with management, users, and
time correct any issues that may
develop from the outage.
How do you think Scotty, on Star
Trek, was always able to get the
engines back online early and look
like a hero to Captain Kirk?
