Since we will not be doing nightly bounces of sfm anymore,
how long do AIX users leave SFM running before they
experience issues? Our AIX server has been up for 1.5 years
without a reboot. One cluster has been up for over a month.
Can SFMs run for months/years without needing to come down ?

thanks in advance for your help
Steve

We have had SFM's run for months on AIX with no problems. We *usually*
have a quarterly downtime where every system gets rebooted, but we've
gone for over a year without touching our interface server.
