Re: [suse-security] Strange server crash
Ok, I log the free memory in a log file to see what happens. I'll keep you in touch.

The next peice is kernel panics. Type: cat /proc/sys/kernel/panic
What's the output?
cat /proc/sys/kernel/panic

Could it be a DOS attack from somewhere ?

Not nit-picking but if you do 'free -m -s5'

that will return the memory usage in MB's - a bit easier to understand I
think ;-).

I will respond to all:

To restart the server we had to do a hard reboot.

We have 1G Ram, 1G Swap space.
There is plenty(more GBs) of space on the hard disks. On all partitions(except /boot).

The hang-up occurs randomly... sometimes at 3 weeks, sometimes at 2 months, sometimes at 1 month.
