Our hypervisor server running CentOS and Xen completely locked-up just right now. The screen was completely blank. I had to hard reboot, and everything came back up normally. No indication of a hardware failure from Dell diagnostics.

I have gone through /var/log/messages and /var/log/dmesg is there anywhere else to look for logging for what may have happened?
