Symptoms of an Unresponsive Process

If your error log contains errors about not being able to open file descriptors, this is usually a symptom of an unresponsive process. For example, the error log may contain a message such as the following:

[17/APR/2009:01:41:13 +0000] - ERROR<12293> - Connection  - conn=-1 
op=-1 msgId=-1 - fd limit exceeded Too many open file descriptors - not listening 
on new connection

Other symptoms of an unresponsive process include LDAP connections that do not answer or that hang, no messages in the error or access logs, or an access log that is never updated.
