A few days ago we had a critical CentOS 7 virtual machine become unresponsive. It is a web server and so the website became inaccessible. In addition, it was no longer responding to VMware tools or VMware console, so it had to be reset in vSphere.

Since then it has not happened again but I would like to know the root cause and I have been unable to determine it. I like CentOS but I am not an expert and so I would like to bring someone in who is very experienced in CentOS to examine the server logs and determine what caused the VM to be unresponsive.

This should take an experienced admin no longer than a few hours to complete, which is why the max bid is so low.

However if you do a good job we have plenty more work for you to do, so keep that in mind.
