If a Linode's kernel crashes...
Bye and thanks.
I've just added this to the to-do list.
On Xen nodes, state is left as Running, and CPU gets pegged. Only after 2 hours of "high cpu" will an alert be e-mailed, if the owner has set such an alert.
Since we're sharing CPU cycles, it would be in interest of everyone to automatically kill guests in this state.
