    I have two servers with same specs, same OS (RHEL5.1), same configurations, and same cPanel builds, running the latest CURRENT release. Two days ago one of the servers started failing, and it has continued to fail randomly every few hours for the past two days. Prior to failure I'm getting emails of ftpd failure, usually followed by a failure of cpsrvd. /var/log/messages usually reads

    Code:
    May 28 17:11:02 hostname_xxx pure-ftpd: (?@ip_xxx) [INFO] Logout.
    May 28 19:05:46 hostname_xxx syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
    
    May 29 12:35:21 hostname_xxx pure-ftpd: (?@ip_xxx) [INFO] Logout.
    May 29 12:53:34 hostname_xxx syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
    
    
    May 29 16:20:42 hostname_xxx pure-ftpd: (?@ip_xxx) [INFO] Logout.
    May 29 16:52:23 hostname_xxx syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
    The server itself isn't crashing as we can ping the server, and as a result our server monitoring doesn't detect the server as down so I need to keep checking to see if I can connect to the services. The server itself apparently freezes, and the only way for me to connect either to WHM or SSH (or any of the services) is to reboot the machine after which it'll run for a few hours before crashing. Chkservd looks like the following:

    We haven't made any changes to the machine other than the updates. The other server with identical config is not having these problems. Is anyone else experiencing anything similar?

    I recommend submitting a support ticket about this so we can analyze this situation on your server as well. If we find any pattern to these situations, I'll post a response to this thread.
