after some further thoughts, I would add
the following to the top of my list (of causes)
- sudden process death caused by
- segfault (bad memory, bad cache, bad cpu)
- resource limitation (ulimit, klimit)
- some process reaping daemon
- (let the data center tech) run memtest86
- compile the vanilla kernel for at least 5 hours
and see if some sigsegfault arises
- run xaos (or something cpu intensive) for
several hours ...
