Apache crashing at random intervals. Can not find a reason in log files

    We are having an issue with a VPS running plesk 9.5 on ubuntu 8.04 At seemingly random intervals Apache will disappear and needs to be started manually. I have checked the apache error log, /var/log/messages, individual virtual host apache error files and cannot find anything that coincides with the time of the failure. dmesg is empty which is a bit odd.

    We have also had other services services go down for no apparent reason such as psa and the mail daemons but apache stays up.

    I'm at a loss to diagnose this really because all the log files I can find do not point to any issues. Are there any others I can look at?

    Memory usage sits at about 55% (out of 400mb) and it isn't a particularly high trafficed server.

    Any pointers as to where else I can find out what is going on would be very much appreciated.

    More info on environment.... Virtuozzo container, plesk 9.3 ubuntu 8.04. 400mb ram with 12 separate domains set up.
