Rock64 Long Term stability - ramprasad - 12-09-2019

Hi All, 

    We are using rock64 v2 for a big roll out in every part of the world in our product.  Our product runs 365x24x7 and we have some questions about long term stability of rock64 hardware.

Our hardware configuration: Rock64 (2GB) with Forsee eMMC and Bluetooth Dongle (StarTek) and rock64 recommended wifi dongle and with some other USB interfaces.

1. We would like to know what is the max number of days the rock64 ran with some applications are running with max of 2 cores are being used at all times without rebooting/shutting down and powering up?

2. If we run continuously, is it tend to slow down the processing?

3. Do we need to take any precautions to run this hardware 365x24x7?

We have some observations (not concrete), but we would like to know what is the capacity of the rock64 to run 365x24x7.

Thanks,
Ram

I run a weather site on my r64 and have for a couple of years, the only time it's failed is because I had a black out and the UPS went out before the power came back on. I haven't noticed any slow down problems due to uptime.

I also have a couple of small heat sinks on it so thermal limits (~83C) aren't being hit and getting the CPU throttled as a result.
