[vox-tech] /var/log/messages question



My colo box stopped responding this morning.  Thankfully, my ISP (Sonic.net)
got an automated page, went into the server room, and called me asking if
they should hit the reboot button, to which I said "can't ping it? sure,
reboot!"

Anyway, I looked over the Apache logs to see if there was anything
particularly interesting, which there wasn't.  Just a gap in time
between when the server stopped responding and when it finished rebooting.

Looking at /var/log/messages, though, at about the time of the 'crash'
(or whatever it was that happened), I'm seeing these, which are unfamiliar
to me (not that I know much about /var/log/messages  to begin with :) )

Any idea what these are about?


They continue until 8:54, then I only see a few of these every 15 minutes:

  Oct  6 10:00:05 plink telnetd[25738]: ttloop:  read: Broken pipe 

(I see a lot of them earlier up in /var/log/messages, and they, too, are
about 15mins apart from each other.  But, I guess that's a completely
different question I'll need to ask :) )

Anyway, then at 10:32, the machine got reboot.


(Note: Looks like the box's clock is ahead of itself by 1/2 hr.  D'oh!)



-bill!
(who is seeing a corollation between those 15-min-apart telnetd messages in
/var/log/messages, and a bunch of telnetd and proftpd connection refusals
in /var/log/secure ... interesting)
