I have a Dual G5, 4GB RAM running 10.4.10. It currently has PHP, Apache 2, JBoss, Indesign Server CS2, MySql running on it. We use it as a web server. The sever for no rhyme or reason just locks up. You can still move your mouse but you can't click on anything. The lock ups are unpredictable. I can't even ssh to the server. I have ran extended hardware tests and everything appears to be working fine. I am open to suggestions and questions.

    What do all the logs say in the minutes leading up to the hang? Can you leave top or Activity Monitor running on it so that when it hangs up it will probably show the machine's status? Have you considered running sar to record the machine's usage?

    I'm having the same issue on a 10.4.11. Server hangs, moving mouse wakes the screen but nothing can be clicked as the "colored spinning wheel" stays there. All users lose the whole services provided. We cannot log in using SSH and we are force to reboot "by hand".

    This issue started with no cause to me as the server has not been "modified" since a long time...

    What's "SAR" you're telling to use ?

    Thanks !
