if it will add only in case of clean shutdown - it would be good.

Mean time between failure (unplanned downtime, crash etc.) is important.

for example i only once reached 100 days in one of my server, but all 
downtimes are because:

- i did clean shutdown
- there was long power outage (quite common that place).
