The computer is a VPS from Vultr. They tell me that "since it is loaded into RAM and not really a drive, nothing on the host would be causing this."

One particular file, my zone file, will come up corrupted for no reason. I have had to replace it from backup a couple of times. I have found other corrupted files (one or two) over the past couple of months. But I am in my dns a lot a the whole world knows when this file explodes/dies.

No errors in dmesg, I ran a file system check at boot and 2 weeks later, same thing.

Where would I look to find the root cause of this file corruption and fix it? . Lots of output

  • Bad disk? Bad RAM? System pwned? :) – lcd047 Jun 10 '15 at 17:11
  • @ lcd047 It's a VPS from Vultr so I am very limited in the diagnostics I can perform on the actual hardware (I should mention this in my question, I will update). They tell me that it's just memory and nothing the host is doing could be causing it. I really don't know. – brad Jun 10 '15 at 17:14
