I have 4.1 Release box that today suddenly stopped responding
except for ping command. I could not connect to it via http,
ssh, ftp or telnet. Then it was rebooted by our hosting enginer
and then I found just a few clues in the logs.

last shows that

some_login ftp Wed Jun 20 16:06 - crash(02:26)

which was the last record before it was rebooted.

no errors in /var/log/messages

apache caught a couple of errors before it stopped responding:

(54)Connection reset by peer: getsockname

Does anyone have any explanations or ideas what it was?
What else should I look for?

Please, send copy to my email address.

Thanks in advance,
