Classic symptoms of the Linux OOM killer.  Are you sure your system has enough RAM and swap
space for *all* of your active processes?  There may be a kernel-generated log entry buried
in some obscure location that describes the event.

Did you look in /tmp for the hs_err_pid file?  The JVM will write it there if it can't write
to the current directory (or at least it used to).
