For the last couple of days my CentOS 5.8 (64-bit) server that is running cPanel & WHM has been crashing.

What I've noticed is that these two lines always show up a couple of seconds before the crash:
Code:
Jan  4 20:05:03 cl-57 pure-ftpd: ([email protected]) [INFO] __cpanel__service__auth__ftpd__KiF63c5FtxieMGpP4x2g2HOEgwJGKfd632fas5226v26vaGGF5gMoyN_0I2f353MkD is now logged in
Jan  4 20:05:03 cl-57 pure-ftpd: (__cpanel__service__auth__ftpd__KiF[email protected]127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.
Also, I get an email saying that the "IMAP has failed" right after the server has been rebooted (after the crash) and after a couple of seconds I receive a "IMAP has recovered" email.

I haven't setup any cronjobs so that can't be causing the problem.
I also reloaded the whole server with a fresh copy of CentOS 5.8 (64-bit) so all WHM settings are set on the default settings.

Does anyone have a clue why the server is crashing every now and then?

Are you getting any load warning e-mails from cPanel? Also, do you have MRTG or Munin installed to show you a load history? Failing that, just running top or checking your load averages within WHM should give you a rough idea as to how highly loaded your server is

I've checked the load averages and nothing special shows up except a few top processes that have taken around 150% of the CPU power.

I'll go ahead and download Munin now.
