Hello Today my server was down

I opened a ticket to the support team, here is the answer:
Hello -

Your Linode is OOMing, meaning something inside your node is consuming all of the available virtual memory. You can see this for yourself by logging into Lish and viewing the console: ... shell.html

You'll need to identify the culprit and adjust its configuration to prevent it from happening again. Apache, mysql, and anti-spam software are the usual suspects. Please visit our community IRC channel if you need any help:

Please anyone advice You need to check what is causing the load and high resource usage. If you are not sure about what to do, then ask help from Linode or hire someone to check your VPS
