Well the load got to the system and crashed the disk on the main server. I use GlusterFS to replicate the disk live, just in case - so I was able to recover pretty much everything. I'll be sending the logs to the GlusterFS community so they can see if they can see what happened. It looks to be like the load just got too much and the FS started to miss blocks.

Whilst the disk rebuilt, I upgrade the two server from an AWS m1.small instance to a c1.medium so I can cope with more load (I hope).

Thanks for you patience.

That was a fantastic recovery operation and to boot increased capacity. Good work!
Looks like the number crunching has indeed increased almost exponentially in the last few days!
