IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
Your kernel had an Oops!

This is the result of bad hardware or a kernel bug.
Your system may continue to function as normal, however
there is a good chance bad things are happening right now.
Bad things include: files disappearing, daemons crashing,
complete server crashs, disk corruption and many others.

You might want to check your RAM with memtest86 as this is
usually the cause of the problem.

The Oops is below:

What does this mean exactly?

could this not be caused by bad RAM?

I checked the drive stats

df -h

/dev/shm was 0% used.. and thats the ram drive is it not?

the dc is replacing my ram now.
