I have two server monitoring tools that check the uptime of my Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS server. Over the last month both of these tools have reported the following outages:
- Jan - 15mins: self recovery
- Jan - 5 mins: self recovery
- Feb - 15mins: I managed to be online when this happened and logged into my control panel to find that my server was shutdown. I manually restarted it only because I was online. I wonder if it would have restarted?
I have contacted my VPS provider (webbynode) who could not see any any problems with their VPS infrastructure for the February outage.
I have also checked the following log files to see if there are any anomalies that could be the cause of the outages; I am unable to see anything related to the server shutdown (Feb) in these logs:
Could anyone suggest any other things I should look out for, such as additional system logs?
I just added bootlogging through /etc/default/bootlogd
