comment Interrupted apt-get upgrade - Now won't run again
Oops sorry, typo. I did an update, but it was the upgrade that got interupted, and which I'm dubious about now. (will correct in question)

comment What is causing `skb rides the rocket` errors?
OK thanks. There's also another bug tracker page here for the same issue. Interestingly one user reports that disabling sg did not resolve the issue for him. bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1317811

comment What is causing `skb rides the rocket` errors?
Thanks Jason. According to man, sg off disables scatter-gather - Wouldn't gso or tso be the correct options for disabling packet segmentation? How has this setting worked out for you so far? Any re-occurrences of this issue?

comment Is a 'high' IO rate healthy?
6000 ops/sec does seem high if you don't know what's causing it. Do you have daily backup? It might be that, or some other batch operation.

comment Is a 'high' IO rate healthy?
It's not 6557 operations in two hours, it's an average of 6557 ops per second over the last two hours. From the Linode manager: Average Disk IO ops/sec over 2 hours exceeding this value triggers this alert.

comment Where to start with diagnosis of dropped network connectivity on Debian?
Thanks. There are definitely no problematic gateways involved, as I have multiple servers on the same subnet (1 hop away from each other), and they cannot communicate with the problematic server when this problem occurs. So from your list I assume we can rule out gateway and network issues. That leaves VM->Host issues. Regarding DHCP, from our VM's point of view we are not using DHCP, but rather have a static IP. How these IPs are allocated by the host though I don't know - I suppose something similar to a DHCP lease could be used?

@PaulHaldane - the only entries in messages around that time are from the reboot I did to fix it - nothing from the problem itself.

These are virtual servers servers are hosted with a VPS provider, so the physical layer is not accessible to me. Also since this has happened on multiple servers, it's unlikely to be an NIC fault or cable etc.
