Overall machine reliability and availability are important objective of any accelerator and that depends on individual components reliability and skill of operators. However, the only presence of beam in a storage ring is not adequate enough to validate a reliable operation, but providing beam with desired quality is utmost important for the synchrotron radiation source serving a large and diverse user community. Various steps are taken to improve the beam availability and reliability of Indus-2, and these are discussed. Improved beam diagnostics, software applications and training imparted to operators plays the major role in achieving high beam availability in Indus-2. The beam availability and the machine downtime analysis along with subsystem failure is also presented.
