I am using Ubuntu 11.04 server addition for my application. During some testing my server has just crashed. After that I am restart the server. My problem is how can i find the reason of crashing? I have googled it and find some suggesstion of checking /var/log/syslog but its too big file. how can i track the reason of crashing?
The recommendations are right:
When you say it is "too big file" - what exactly do you mean? Sometimes you need to plod through giant log files to figure out what went wrong. That's the life of a system administrator...
