Pix keeps hanging

I have a pix 501 that keeps hanging and prevents access into and out of the network. A hard reset brings it back to life. How can I troubleshoot the problem? How do I configure logging?

can you login via telnet to switch and issue:
show xlate to see nat translations
clear xlate to clear active nat translations. sometimes it is possible that translation table is filled up and no new connections extablished
does clear nat translations help?
what is mentioned in sh log?

Can you give me more details please?
When I try to enable logging using PDM I get a message that it cannot communicate with the PIX. It seemed to login initially OK via PDM.
