CPU Usage by averaging 395.3% for the last 2 hours ---eek

So I got a linode alert last night notifying me of almost 400% CPU usage last night, which started about 12:30am. I rebooted and everything has been running fine since. Any where I can look to see what possible happened so I don't run into this situation again? All services were locked up including ssh and http.

Sounds to me like an OOM (out-of-memory) related problem.

you can clearly see the spike on my memory plot before even munin stopped responding. Even if it was memory related, something still would have caused this though, right?
