I have tested for bad RAM when the server was installed 3 month ago, I did a memtest that run for a day.
This is an 8 core server, and I run one twistd process per core, and surprisingly, only one crashed out of 8. Would you think that the effect of bad RAM would be confined to just once server out of 8?
