Inetd logs to /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log.

I am not able to find anything in syslog related to inetd.

What OS version is this? Check if there are any inetd related patches. inetd is the most stable daemon I have seen, it should not die like that. If there is nothing in the log that means inetd went down hard with a "kill -9". A normal kill would log something in the syslog.log. Also check if you find a core file that may be the result of the killed inetd.

find / -name core

and check the found core files to see if any of them is created by inetd getting flushed down the toilet. If so, I think you can contact HP to have them analyze the core dump.

But if some process or some person took the daemon down with a kill -9, you are pretty much out of luck as this will not leave any traces behind.
