BTW: I started to keep a 
	vmstat 5 | logger -t vmstat:
	while true; do  ps faxu|logger -t ps: ; sleep 15; done
running and log the output with everything else to a seperate host who
has logcheck and some other monitoring stuff installed.

The ps line is quite interesting if the server crashes, if e.g. a server
starts eating up all memory no minutely (cron granularity) run check is 
able to detect it.
