Linux vsftp crashing

I am a newbie to Linux and I am having some trouble with my FTP server vsftp.  I am monitoring the server remotely and I notice every few days the vsftpd service stops running requiring me to login and start the service.  I checked the /var/log/vsftpd log and see nothing related to the crash.  

Can someone provide me with some guidance on where to looking for the problem?

Thanks,
