then at the end it picks back up at the right time. weird?

...

On a real note, the server has rebooted twice now today randomly, out of the blue. I've not had any problems in weeks. Recently, had the drive DDRescue cloned to a new drive, ran fsck everything came out fine and that was when all this started.

ideas?

How are you thinking that we are to help you troubleshoot this when you're not even telling us what kind of hardware it is running on? –  pauska Jan 7 '13 at 4:29

Dropping a log message on us which just shows your system rebooting with no other substantial anomalies and asking us to cast the runes and come up with a diagnosis is somewhat poor form - You've received a good suggestion (test your RAM), but really you need to do some more in-depth troubleshooting before we can even begin to help you. In addition to the RAM test you should run down the list of everything that changed recently (e.g. what else besides the ddrescue cloning has happened? Presumably you needed that tool for a reason - that context is probably important). –  voretaq7 Jan 7 '13 at 4:45
    
What else should I try for diagnosis? Did not think about the RAM. –  Mike Janson Jan 7 '13 at 4:47

You've already fscked, presumably it's not the drive. This is the exact behavior to expect when memory is failing. You can use memtest86 or memtest86+ (loaded on UBCD?) and run through a few cycles of memory. Obviously, for a production server, it's nice to swap memory and run this on a test machine.

Agree on the RAM check, but remember that fsck just ensures the filesystem is in a "consistent" state - there could be underlying corruption (from the ddrescue, or from bad RAM causing nasty things to happen). I've even seen really wonky RAM cause fsck to mark a filesystem clean, when in reality the superblock information written out is gibberish. (That was NOT a fun weekend.) –  voretaq7 Jan 7 '13 at 4:49
    
how to use memtest86+ to test ? –  Sharen Eayrs Jul 25 '13 at 4:43

Your server may have a bad RAM. test it using memtest. Also look at this post.
