Log file question


Below is a copy of my messager log - it has a gap of information from May 30 - May 31.

The server crashed yesterday and was restarted @ 12:40ish May 31. Can someone look at the log tell if someone physically turn the box off?

Hi,

And welcome to LQ!

Impossible to tell whether it was switched off, reset was pressed
or there was a glitch in the power. But it definitely went down
without a warning. Might even be a box set-up to reboot on a kernel
panic without human intervention. For us a dying motherboard (capacitors
had come of age) did things like the above, too. Just reset itself at
random times. Heaps of possible reasons, and, as stated above, all you
can tell is that it went down without a warning.


Cheers,
Tink

type "last" to see if that's a crash or not:
Code:
olivier  :0                            Wed Sep 21 17:42 - down   (05:30)    
reboot   system boot  2.6.12-gentoo-r1 Wed Sep 21 17:42          (05:31)    
olivier  :0                            Wed Sep 21 08:53 - crash  (08:48)    
reboot   system boot  2.6.12-gentoo-r1 Wed Sep 21 08:53          (14:20)    
olivier  :0                            Tue Sep 20 08:50 - 23:04  (14:14)
