I think there could be an easy watchdog setup.

Use cron to start a shell script every now and then, doing this :
cd `dirname $0`
if [ ! -f restart_in_progress ]
then
  wget -O sched_test http://www.cosmologyathome.org/cosmohome_cgi/cgi
  grep -q \"Incomplete request received\" sched_test
  if [ $? -ne 0 ]
  then
    touch restart_in_progress
    # restart demons ...
    cd /etc/rc2.d
    ./S99BOINC -restart [color=grey]... or whatever it needs[/color]
    cd -
    # avoid more than one restart every xxx seconds
    sleep 1200
    rm -f restart_in_progress
  fi
fi

sorry, it looks a bit crappy as neither \"code\" nor \"pre\" work so well in BOINC

Hmm... whenever I check the server, everything seems fine. Is there a specific time of day when this happens?

It doesn\'t happen too often anymore lately.

Maybe you could use a modified watchdog script and (for a while) use it just to write an email or add an entry to a log file.

There will be a bit of down time later tonight while we tweak the database a bit.
