FS System: Leap Seconds Explained (Doc ID 2019386.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 31, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle FS1-2 Flash Storage System - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Details

A leap second is defined as a second that is occasionally inserted into the atomic scale of reckoning time in order to bring it into line with solar time. It is indicated by an additional beep in the time signal at the end of some years.

The FS1-2 storage product and its predecessor the Axiom are not affected by leap seconds in any way. These systems are software data storage appliances that run the proprietary Oracle fastpath software stack, and only use Linux as the utility base. The use of Linux is such that both the Axiom and FS1-2 are unaffected. This was proven in test, but also in the field by prior leap second instances being properly handled by systems running in the customer environment.
