Cacti woldn't think so: the graph about swap space is plain flat (round
0%, by the way); of course it could have risen so fast that it reached
100% between two consecutive polls, but I doubt it.
Besides, why would the system crash for such a reason? I'd expect
application failing, not the whole kernel. Am I wrong?

SOB! I hope not. RAM is fine, HDs are SAS RAID with a good contoller
which should have detected failures...
What else can I check?

Right now I've only had this crash (and hope no other will follow). In
the worst case, I'll take notice.

I appreciate your interest anyway.
