Could you see anything strange behavior in this? I'm seeing as memory got
filled up, one of the samba volume got dismounted. I can't be sure if it is
memory error or disk error. But BIOS memory check and fsck doesn't seem to
find any errors. I'm running XFS. Would you have other recommendations that
I can check?
