If you haven't installed anything the last 2 weeks, especially not kernel space drivers, I would suspect the hardware. First power supply (just swap it for a good one, your fans have to replaced anyway), second candidate is memory. Although memory is also sensitive to power deviations.

Thanks jlinkels.

Actually my Linux m/n is a VM (virtual m/n) running on XEN (similar to VMWare). we have many servers running like this. But unexpected restart happened on one m/n only. Any other clues? please let me know if u need any other log files for analysis...

Thanks in advance.

Given you had a kernel segfault, I'd phone RH, assuming you have a subscription for this.
