All of this can be bad, or not quite bad -- just not healthy --
hardware. Say a power supply that can't supply reliable +5, when the
line voltage drops a tad while all the disks are being hammered. It
can be a nightmare to figure out. Setup crash dumps, but also make
sure that the UPS the box is attached to isn't having problems. If
it's not on conditioned power, fix that.
