A 3rd party service starts flooding my cell phone with alerts if  
anything is down for an hour, and I haven't received any notifications  
about this before the kernel problem kicked in. I'll have to  
investigate more; the machine probably slowed down initially but still  

In general, downtime with this machine has been exceedingly rare, so I  
haven't felt compelled to improve upon the combination of hourly  
monitoring and 20-minute watchdog. It's now time to rethink this.  
Tomorrow, I will set up off-site Nagios with 60s monitoring frequency  
for all of SL infra and post the details here.
