Find out which process caused a crash!
Posted on 2004-08-30
Our server crashed two days ago, and it looks like it ran out of memory and got overloaded. Is there any way to get an idea of which process caused the crash?
sar -u sa28
and discovered that between 12:40pm and 12:50pm something took over the cpu and didn't let go until it final crashed 5.5 hours later.
My questions are: how can I get a listing of the processes that were running and/or created during that 10 minute period? Is there any way to tell which processes where demanding the most cpu time at the time of the crash?
Thanks for your help.
