Remote terminal sessions lock up and daemons flake out

This last problem has started to happen only lately.
I log in from my FreeBSD workstation, on an xterm, via ssh to a remote
machine running 4.9. I often sudo -s. I'm using tcsh. Lately, I leave
the session for a while and come back and the session is locked up. I
can't exit or anything. I kill the xterm and restart. I reconnect to
the box, and there's no hanging session ... any advice?
Possibly related. This is a Plesk box. The httpd and spamd frequently
fail. I've got a duct-tape script in cron to check these demons and
restart. Pointers on where I might look, perhaps in sysctl, to pinpoint
what might be happening?
