Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Help! no SSH Telnet Access

Posted by David Walker on
I have seen sshd die.  I have a firewall machine with only 24mb of ram and
an out of memory situation can result in either being unable to log in with
sshd or sshd being killed entirely.

(Tip for any programmers or script writers out there.  Infinitely spawning
processes may cause problems and use up all available memory.)
