I think some kind of monitoring would be a good idea -- it just looks  
extremely amateurish to have the main site for something like this  
yoyoing frantically the whole time.

That said, it would be better to work out what the problem is and fix  
it. However, if we can do both...

Andrew -- can you give us any more details about what was going on  
that meant we had to reboot the UML yesterday? Could that have been  
causing the problems we were seeing inside the UML?
