My problem is, Ejabberd is freezing/suspending after a duration of normal
operation, usually 1-2 days. There is no log, no dump etc. I'm running it
in a screen session as you mentioned.

Today i found that, if i paused non-woking/frozen Ejabberd process via
ctrl-z then bg and then fg again; process is _beginning_ to do normal
operation (working again) without killing or cancellig the process.

I hope it is a bit clear now.

Thank you.
