I have a Google Cloud VM that I'm running a web crawler on. Unfortunately, the crawler does not add any entries to the database after a certain time. If I then want to connect to the VM to see what the problem is, I cannot connect (both via Putty and via Google's own interface). But on the GCP interface it says that the server is still running. If I stop the VM and start it again, its like nothing happend, but after some time, the same error comes again.

Does anyone have a solution?


I am not certain that this is the exact issue but I had something very similar happen to me recently whiles importing posts and images from one site to a staging site. In an attempt to find the solution I spent far too much time server monitoring and php upgrading etc. To my great embarrassment I realized the the issue was my storage running out. After upping storage for the account my issues stopped completely.
