Huge burst on nodebalancer, oom on server, out of ideas
Everything runs great, squid takes 95 percent of the load of serving pages.
But once a day on most days, not at the same time, the server goes into OOM and thrashing and has to be re-booted.
Looking at the nodebalancer incoming connections we see a huge traffic spike about 600-700 connections/second and then an immediate return to our normal 80-100.
There is nothing in the squid logs or apache logs abnormal during these periods.
Any ideas? I want to try and attribute it to a run away process somewhere, but what could trigger a traffic spike on the nodebalancer?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
