Thanks, but after doing this and restarting mongod cat /proc/{pid}/limits shows no change. Does something additional need to be done to ensure the conf is read?

comment Did my mongoDB server crash because the database is too large?
I have 3.2GB available. I guess I'll expand that and look at full upgrade to ext4. I'd still love to know the actual cause of crash though. I learn nothing from it otherwise.

It ran for over 24 hours, but crashes seem fairly arbitrary and again the logs don't show anything interesting. In fact nothing in logs at all at time of last crash.

After accepting this answer I upgraded to the 2.6, but the crash happened again today. Any other ideas? could this be due to large files on ext3?

I posted the log after another crash today. pastebin.com/Vyt0XbmT The validate commands are my ping service. The last proper read/write activity was an hour before the log stops. Obviously I'm going to upgrade the DB version, but I'd love to understand the actual reason for the crash.

Not sure what to post, it's huge and around the time it shutdown the entries were just normal queries. It is showing a lot of this at the moment [clientcursormon] mem (MB) res:77 virt:2887 mapped:1296

Just to confirm: you're talking about each file size that the DB is split into, not the total DB size? I notice that each new file preallocation size doubles. db.0 64M, db.1 128M, db.2 256M and so on.
