Sometimes while I am gone for work or for the weekend, my main Ubuntu machine that I use as a desktop and personal server will become hung up. This only started happening after I put in an OCZ SSD. When it happens, the machine is completely non-responsive to user input, the hard drive light is constantly lit, and connecting to it usually fails (though I did see one instance where Apache continued to work in a very limited fashion - it seemed to still be running and resident in memory, but unable to serve any pages).
Anyone have any ideas about what might be happening here or how I can start to figure it out?
Here's the output of
Linux debbay 2.6.1-22-generic #65-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 16 15:48:58 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
I know I'm not using a recent enough kernel to support TRIM, and I plan on upgrading soon, but that shouldn't cause the extent of problems that I'm currently having.
