Re: [suse-security] Strange server crash
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.

ACPI from what I see is enabled. I will disable it.

To disable acpi I change this line:
append = "resume=/dev/sda2 splash=silent acpi=off console=tty0 desktop"

Overheating is excluded.

I attached the boot.msg. I'm not very experienced in interpreting those messages.

Kernel panics?
Is the box/cpu overheating?

[suse-security] Strange server crash

Hi to all,

We have a Fujitsu Siemens server, Dual Xeon 2.8, 160GB sata HDD configured
in software raid. On the server there is Apache, Php, vsftp and postgresql
db running. Suse 9.1 64 Prof is installed.

About once a month the server just freezes. Sometimes I can ping and it
respondes, sometimes not. I cannot connect to the server anymore froma any
point of view. None of the services are running anymore, http, ftp, samba
etc... I cannot know if the console works because I'm not near the server.
I looked over and over the log files and couldn't see anything wrong. Or
maybe my log settings are not right?

Any clues?

Thanks in advance.
