Thanks for reply Andy.
- Did this ever happen before installing Apache/Subversion?
The server has been running the Apache/Subversion for half an year
without any problem,
it working like a charm.
The problem started since the end of May.
This server acts as a fileserver also and serving 150 peoples.
- Does there seem to be any pattern to the hangs (amount of time before
hanging, # of checkins, # of users, etc.)?
I think is either apache nor subversion makes the server stop
I tried to ping the server, I got replies, which means I don't think
there is a internal DOS attack
Most likely there were processes that ate all the system resouces and
made the server partialy stop responding.
- Is the hardware healthy and staying cool?
It is a IBM server with 3Ghz Xenon and 4GB of RAM.
The hardware condition is good.

I've had this happen on Windows 2000 servers that weren't running
Apache/Subversion. I'm not convinced that this problem is due to this

If it turns up positive, I'd be shocked (and scared for you). It's also
possible that the server is getting DoSed from within your network,

Depends on whether they indicate any oddities before the server starts
