    Hi Amer,

    Unfortunately there isn't really sufficient data in the job description to provide a fixed price quote to fix the issue, however I would be interested in performing some log collection etc... prior to providing a proposal so I can accurately estimate the price to fix. Would you be open to a brief 20 minute Skype call to collect these logs so I can submit a proposal? Or would you be open to a per hour proposal rather than a fixed price proposal?

    Best Regards,

    Hello Amer,

    Nice to meet you, my name is Juan and I'm an experienced Linux System administrator. Before providing a quote I was wondering if you could provide the following details:

    - Do you have any monitoring system in place collecting system utilization metrics?
    - Is the system going down on heavy load times or just randomly?
    - Is there any deadline for this project?

    You mentioned the problem began a few months ago, so it might be strictly related to site growth and some resource exhaustion, however is hard to tell without metrics. I'm looking forward to your details.
