have you ever seen this?
I just had a really runaway server. Load avg 1007.51 and after I issued a reboot command it came back to the prompt. I actually managed to open 3 SSH sessions and issued 3 reboot commands but nothing.
Were you able to do a top command when in those ssh sessions?
How much of your memory are you using? Its possible that the server was swapping and ran out of swap space.
Next time this happens ask your DC to check it out, they will most likely be able to determine if its a hardware problem.
Kill all apps first yourself, and everything else not needed, then try rebooting again.
That would be a record for me. I have never seen a server still able to spit out the load average above 500 or so
