With over 2 decades of operations at the RHIC, the generally improving trends in availability and reliability do include a number of running periods with anomalies; it is difficult to analyze coarse statistics in fine detail. Early trends can be attributed to improvements in general areas such as system upgrades or operational efficiency; later years involve ever greater concern for aging systems. Recent years are additionally complicated. This presentation looks at overall trends with focus on recent issues as we look to close out RHIC runs and plan reliability for the EIC.
