    I am having Linux Redhat 7.3 server and I don't know why but almost every day it is crashing and automatically get hangs and after then I have to request to NOC for the rebooting.

    Please help me and tell me how can I find out the problem or the process which is consuming lots of resources.

    Also please tell me how can I check the resources consumed by any particular user on the server. Is it possible through Top command ?

    Any help would be really appreciated :confused:

    Is this happening at any particular time? Like around 4am when nightly cron jobs are done? We didn't have crashes, but noticed some services would go down during the crons. Adding some memory resolved the issue for us.

    If you think someone may be consuming too many resources, you could go to http://rfxnetworks.com and pick up a copy of process resource monitor. Once installed, this program is supposed to kill any process that hogs up resources.

    Btw, if you have time, you can also periodically monitor resource usage through WHM by checking the status and if you notice server load is high, you can check 'top' from within WHM.

    thanx alex for your suggestion atleast I find the problem(maybe). I downloaded the PRM from the rfx and it is very good tool and most of the I notice it killed the process named : ksoftirqd_CPU0

    I don't know what is this and what it does. I find in the forums but nothing about this particular process. Right now this is the conclusion that this process may be the culprit who is consuming a lot of resources.

    One Sample mail sent by PRM :
    - Event Summary:
    USER: root
    PID : 4
    CMD : [ksoftirqd_CPU0]
    CPU%: 0 (limit: 40)
    MEM%: 0 (limit: 20)
    PROCS: 225 (limit: 25)

    Can someone please tell me what this process actually does and how to control the resources consumed by this process.

    Looks like a kernel bug, or more likely bad hardware
