    Server Locks up (freeze) at 00:00 (midnight)

    Hi Folks,

    We host multiple servers at varous facilities, but for the past 3 nights I've had a server with The Planet that has been freezing at 00:00 hour.

    I've checked crons, I've watched top (as it freezes) and I'm at a loss.

    CPU load is at 0.3, and memory usually around 3GB of the 4GB on the machine (most of the day it floats between 2GB and 3GB used.

    Nothing odd happening on the server that I can see - regular things such as exim, apache etc.

    Running latest cPanel, Redhat- 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp

    Before Restart:

    23:56:01 up 23:43, 1 user, load average: 0.30, 0.20, 0.18
    23:57:02 up 23:44, 1 user, load average: 0.23, 0.20, 0.18
    23:58:01 up 23:45, 1 user, load average: 0.53, 0.29, 0.21
    23:59:01 up 23:46, 1 user, load average: 0.25, 0.25, 0.19

    After Restart:

    00:10:03 up 0 min, 0 users, load average: 2.27, 0.53, 0.17
    00:11:03 up 1 min, 0 users, load average: 4.10, 1.45, 0.52
    00:12:01 up 2 min, 0 users, load average: 1.69, 1.23, 0.50
    00:13:01 up 3 min, 0 users, load average: 0.82, 1.05, 0.48
    00:14:01 up 4 min, 0 users, load average: 0.56, 0.94, 0.47
    00:15:01 up 5 min, 0 users, load average: 0.43, 0.84, 0.46
    00:16:01 up 6 min, 0 users, load average: 0.28, 0.71, 0.44

    CPU drifts back to 0.2 and 0.1's until about 7am when users hit the machine again.

    Anyone have any thoughts as to what the problem may be?

    Thanks,

    Figured I'd post a follow up on here to say that this issue has been resolved. There was a direcotry missing in a cron job that was running. As a result, the system freaked out.

    All is working again.
