Cause of "sick server" syndrome?

The Mac OS X Server Mailing List mailing list
Has anyone seen anything like this?

We have a 10.9.5 iMac server that hung. Booting it into single-user mode required about 25 minutes with no external devices connected. I did so to run fsck on the boot drive, which came back with:

** The volume Macintosh HD appears to be OK.

I typed “exit” at the root#” prompt, to which it responded with “logout” and has been sitting like that ever since (about 45 minutes now).

Here’s the tail of the boot log. It doesn’t show anything abnormal. What could be causing this?

Slow reads like that could be a sick hard drive, especially as it's
appearing to pause during HD activity.

Consider running http://SpinRite.info on the drive or replacing the HD from
a backup.

Cheers,

Re: Cause of "sick server" syndrome?

You may be correct about the disk going bad, but oddly enough the system has rebooted, finally (took about an hour). I would think that with a flaky disk there would be hard errors so that it would not be able to boot? At any rate, there’s not much else besides the disk that would exhibit this behavior: memory, motherboard, bus, power supply. I’m trying to log in now to run SpinRite...
