Hi I have a dedicated server running redhat Linux. Whenever it is overloaded, it cannot be remotely rebooted and has to be manually rebooted. Any solution to this issue?

Thanks.

What happens when it is overloaded? You can't access the console / control panel? If so that is what you have to fix: the overloading; presumably memory swapping?

Simple answer is to add more RAM and / or optimize your processes.

+1 to Frank's suggestions. I'll add 'do it, NOW!'

Long term there are remotely manageable AC power strips that you can log into and power off/power on the server from a remote telnet session.

There are keyboard/mouse over IP solutions available too that can send CTL-ALT-DEL to the server.

Thank you both for reply.

>>What happens when it is overloaded? You can't access the console / control panel?
When it is overloaded, most of the time, I can still access the console via SSH and issue a reboot command. The system even responds by saying the system is going to reboot. But, no reboot happens. I have to ask my host company to do a manual reboot every time.

>>Simple answer is to add more RAM and / or optimize your processes.
How can I optimize my processes? I have no idea although this is my third dedicated server.

It sounds weird to me that once a reboot command is given and the system receives the command, but just nothing happens. Any clue for this strange thing?

Probably is or will reboot just the system as u said is overloaded so it takes forever for the command to happen. The host is probably killing the power really not something I would want to happen very much. I would follow the above suggestions find out why this is happening and fix it asap.
