"downtime n. The period during which a system is error-free and immune from user input. Compare UPTIME. See also CRASH."

No need for that anymore with kernel live patching. Canonical offers it for up to 3 servers for free and Kernelcare.com is so affordable that the hassle to manually update and reboot isn't worthwhile anymore.
