Re: 20050510: computer freezes

During these periods ssh is completely unable to connect to the machine...I do log ps -eaf and free, although I think those have been written over since this most recent crash. The free command shows that most of the memory is used, however according to some google searches this is because at boot the kernel "takes" the memor and allocates it as didn't show me anything...I've checked all /var/log files and nothing jumps out there either.

Have you tried logging onto the system from another machine via ssh or telnet during these periods? If so, is it sticky from there too? I'm wondering if something could be hanging up your X server. Also, are there any hints in /var/log/messages* or /var/log/boot.log*? Nothing jumps out at me in your top log. You might try logging "ps -eaf" and "free" to get an idea about memory usage and all processes listed on the system.
