Re: Server hang after run for some time

Is your server stored in a clean, proper cooling room/area? I am worrying your server might be overheating at some point and causing the issue.

Please provide the server model, check and inform me how much memory install in the server
Cooling and CPU fan is working properly? You can swap memory.

Hi,

This message is kernel related BUG. Try to boot your os in GRUB mode and check that issue.
System resumes and kernel reports a soft lockup in /var/log/messages.
You can also check that issue by reseating cpu.
