uptime, stability and regular reboots

Some time ago we were advised to reboot Space every month (when there was no update available that would forece a reboot) in order to make the system behave better.

 

Now that we're on 16.2R2, is this still required, or even recommended?

 

 

This is a Space instance running as VMs on ESXi 6 managing a dozen srx/ex devices.

 

 

thanks.

Hi stine,

It is not required if you have minimum configuration in place.
CPU 4 cores
RAM 32G+

It is also depend on how many applications you are using like Security Director, Network Director etc...

Considering that you had to qualify your answer....I think I'll continue to boot every month when there aren't any updates.

thanks.

If you facing performance issue, then it is better to open JTAC case to investigate further.

In addition to what PML said

I would suggest installling vmtools as it suported on16R2 version and monitor your system

I would also suggest to follow the juniper recommendation to have better performance
