    Default Services stopping and starting

    I've just recently setup a new server running Zimbra ZCS OSE 8.0.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

    Specs:
    1 GB
    30 GB Storage
    2 CPU
    on a KVM VPS

    Zimbra installed well, no problems (which is more than I can say for OpenVZ argh).

    I am getting a bunch of emails everyday that says service xxxxx has stopped, service xxxx has started and so on. I got a bunch at 1:40 and 1:41am last night.

    The services mainly affected are (in order of frequency): mailbox, mailboxd, stats, sasl, antivirus, mta

    They always seem to start up again so I haven't noticed any "down time" but I would like to debug the cause.

    First, I know that I'm running Zimbra on 1GB and it should be 2GB. But, I only have 5-6 users using it with only 1-2 heavy email users. So, I'm trying to get away with the MINIMUM ram possible to save on costs.

    I have not run any java/mysql tweaks yet to try and reduce the footprint. I thought I would check here first. If the concensus is that it is probably RAM that is causing the issue then I will try tweaking the settings a little to see if I can get it running responsive and reliable.

    I don't know where to look to debug the issues though, so would appreciate the help.

    The 1GB of RAM is likely to be the problem, as you've mentioned it's well below the minimum recommended in the Install Guide and many forum threads.

    for ZCS8, minimum is generally 3GB of RAM.
