Share the log files for better clearance (messages and dmesg). If any recent changes happened, post that also.

Well, you're getting slaughtered by "snmpd[3490]: Connection from UDP: [192.168.1.1]:62426" type msgs, probably filling your disk up.
I'd start with finding out what that is caused by and fixing it.

nailsd-s4=> Check the syslog and message log.
=> check the memory and I/O ,command is "sar -B"

2 Question--
(1) What is the memory size and how many CPU
(2) Have you upgraded the kernel few days back or change the kernel.
