Uptime Funk: Using SUSE's kGraft Live Kernel Patching For Linux

Written by Michael Larabel in SUSE on 5 November 2015 at 04:50 PM EST. 4 Comments
Last year SUSE announced KGraft as a new form of live Linux kernel patching to reduce downtime by avoiding reboots when applying kernel security updates, etc. The initial combined infrastructure work of kGraft and Red Hat's Kpatch was merged in Linux 4.0. Here's how SUSE is showing off their live kernel patching method.

At SUSECon 2015 in Amsterdam today, they posted the parody video embedded below of Uptown Funk, which they have called Uptime Funk. Watch it if you want a good laugh.
