The server is in data center and I am not there. I don't have any  
details of what happened. It didn't seem to log anything. There is no  
errors. I just know that it is down, when my alarm goes off. If I am  
not trying to back up with rsync then I don't have an issue. How  
would I get the information that you are looking for?
