This could have to do with a lack of resources for your VPS, as in your CPU or Memory is lacking, no swap (or not enough) ... Or your disk(s) isn't fast enough (high IO)...

The system is not really "crashing" though, it's showing INFO messages, you could actually get rid of them, but you're probably experiencing system instabillity ...

If possible you can check the dmesg and/or syslog logs ... Type dmesg <enter> or check in /var/log/syslog.

Can you give your VPS more memory? Even if it's temporary ... Is there NFS involved somewhere in your VPS (doubt it, but checking to be sure)
