1.2 About Ksplice Uptrack

The Ksplice Uptrack software client enables you to apply the latest kernel security errata for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) without halting the system or restarting any applications. Ksplice Uptrack applies the update patches in the background with a negligible impact, usually consisting of a pause of at most a few milliseconds. You can use Ksplice Uptrack and still upgrade your kernel by using your usual mechanism, such as running the yum command.

Ksplice Uptrack is freely available for Oracle Linux customers that subscribe to Oracle Linux Premier Support, and to Oracle Public Cloud and Oracle Bare Metal Cloud customers. If you are an Oracle Linux Basic, Basic Limited, or Network Support subscriber, contact your sales representatives to discuss a potential upgrade of your subscription to a Premier Support plan.
