Beneficial bacteria

It’s been a long debate for years but has someone got an answer to how long your beneficial bacteria will last in a power outage? This is going on an average sized canister.

so many variables.
what media do you use? How much? How much oxygen do you have in your water?
then bacteria can survive inert for years depending on strains, dried even. Then come back to life when conditions are right again.
bacteria needs food and oxygen to thrive. some sp. die faster than others?
