There's no real problem with the web server, other than only having
limited memory which limits the number of fastcgi daemons we can run
to service API requests.

It was just being swamped with requests this evening - there was a
bit of a queue but it seems to have been servicing them as best it

There are no problems reported by smartctl so I don't know what
munin is talking about.
