Shell Server




     We have a weird situation going on right now with the shell server where
someone has launched enough programs to run it out of swap.  This would not
happen under normal circumstances.  Either someone's shell script has run
amuck, or someone is deliberately attacking the machine.

     I can't get a command in edgewise, not even a ps; so this will be
unresolvable until I can get to the co-lo at around 4pm.  In the meantime,
please connect to chat.eskimo.com and use it.
