AB - LHC operation restarted in 2015 after the first Long Shutdown, planning for a 4-year long run until the end of 2018 (called Run 2). The beam energy was fixed at 6.5 TeV. The year 2015 was dedicated to establishing operation at the high energy and with 25 ns beams, in order to prepare production for the following three years. The year 2016 was the first one dedicated to production, and it turned out to be a record-breaking year, in which the goals in both peak and integrated luminosities with proton-proton beams were achieved and surpassed. This paper revisits 2015 and 2016, shortly highlighting the main facts in the timelines, recalling the parameters that characterized luminosity production, and sketching the main limitations and the main highlights of results for selected topics, including a particular focus on the beam physics issues.
