    Sadly this isn't enough information to determine the source of the issue. If you could please log into your server and paste the output of "ps auxw | grep syslog" it should give use a better idea of what is going on.

    Also, what distribution is your server running?

    Go on, have a guess
    Check /var/log/messages for any errors relating to syslog. /var/log/chkservd.log might also shed some light into why it thought it was stopped. Also, make sure you're not running anything that might kill it off (PRM comes to mind).
