Process's getting 'Killed' - no log, plenty free ram - Debian Lenny
Hi, all this is my first post but im resonable linux skilled.
Im running a VPS account with Debian Linux Lenny, Virtualmin/Webmin.
This has only recently started but i dont know at what point, as havent done much on it recently but applied some updates.
Theres always at least 50% free ram when it happens (of 512mb) and basically no CPU activity.
Ive even tried killing off all process's apart from what i believed to be needed to test, (init, sshd, loggers)
I can find mention of the action anywhere in any logs, even though i have klogd and syslog running
It seems to happen at varying intervals fairly regularly with certain processes.
Ive had it happen with a big 'rm -r'
but more regularly with make's , make install's, apt-get (while its awaiting your reply to proceed), and rtorrent.
im sure there's others though but this is what ive been using.
all i get is "Killed" and back to prompt,
if i type "echo $?" i get '137'
there has been some node performance issues at night during backups with the host but they say they havn't implemented any limits and are upgrading hardware to resolve.
