3.1 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 updated patches in the background with negligible impact, and usually only requires a pause of a few milliseconds. You can use Ksplice Uptrack as well as continue to upgrade your kernel through the usual mechanism, such as running the yum command.

Ksplice Uptrack is freely available for Oracle customers who subscribe to Oracle Linux Premier Support, and to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services. 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.
