    dmesg only shows messages printed by the kernel. It won't shed any
    light on why a userspace daemon (like ssh) is dying.

    After the sshd fails, I'd start with "cd /var/log; ls -lart", see
    which file is the most recent, and then tail that file to see the most
    recent syslog messages. (It's probably "messages" or "daemon.log"
    on most systems.)
