Status-Server is sent from localhost once a second as part of the 
failover system I use:

The script used is:

I do not think it is related to it as sometimes days can pass between 
the daemon exiting and on this occasion it was only an hour or two.  If 
it was related to the cumulative number of requests being processed, I 
would expect a roughly regular 'death' interval.

I do not think it is load related either as we have had the system die 
at all hours of the day.
