Red face System restarts itself syslogd 1.4.1: restart


Hello,
We have centOS 5.3. It was running all successful till we had some issue wrt locking issue with mounted shared windows drive. Then we updated the kernel using "yum update kernel". The the system gets restarted very frequently. I just checked the /var/log/messages and this was the log snippet

The log doesn't help in this case. Try enabling kdump. If it crashes, you'll get a crash dump to analyze. If it freezes, try pressing alt+sysrq+c to trigger a crash dump.

Thanks @AlucardZero for pointing to the rt direction. As I am a linux newbie, it too time to enable kdump. Finally I just enabled it 2day and after that there was a system reboot but unfortunately there was not relevant message/logs in /var/crash folder. Any reason for that.
Out of curiosity I just took at a look at cron log and mcelog file. The content in the mcelog file maybe provides the root cause of the system reboot. Could anybody take a look at the below log and let me know if this is cuasing the system reboot. Let me tell u that the CPU is brand new with 16 processor.
