Web Server Outage 12:20-12:40 8/28/2015

     Our web server stopped functioning around 12:20PM today (August 28th 2015).

     I was unable to login to the machine to assess what was happening.  Whatever it was saturated disk I/O and ftp which is on the same machine continued to function but ssh and vnc did not.

     The logs did not provide any useful details to isolate the cause.  I have not seen this behavior in this machine previously.

     There were a number of recent updates.  Also I added two more gigabytes of RAM for a total of ten instead of eight.
