    Hello

    today at 01:16:00 my server crashed . Datacenter rebooted it without problems.

    I am trying to understand why it crashed .

    I analyzed error_log and I cannot see problems .
    I analyzed access_log and I cannot see problems .

    I analyzed last usage with sar and I found

    01:40:01 AM all 100.14 100.16 100.15 0.00

    Probably system crashed after this overusage at 01:40:01 .

    Where other places can I investigate deeper to find what caused the crash ?
    Can I see latest processes before the crash ?


    Thank you!

    What about the exim logs? My guess is you got mailbombed with spam.
