This isn't quite true. There have been multiple server failures. And if I
recall, I think that there have been quite a few servers (like 12 of 13)
that have been down at one time in this timeframe.
But I haven't been keeping close track. If someone has been keeping
operational stats (like outage date, cause, postmortem) on the roots, I'd
appreciate a pointer to this...
Outage reports and an outage archives maintained by the legacy root
operators would be nice.
I also rmember many incidents over the years involving root server outages
- but it's never official. usually someone discovers a problem and
sometimes a root operator responds. Usually in NANOG.
