That was yesterday afternoon and not 0:40 today in the morning.
With the watchdog-timeout set to 5s this may have been tight though.
Maybe check your other nodes for similar warnings - or check the compressed
Maybe you can as well check the journal of sbd after start to see if it
managed to run rt-scheduled.
Is this a bare-metal-setup or running on some hypervisor?
Unfortunately I'm not enough into postgres to tell if there is anything
interesting about the last
messages shown before the suspected watchdog-reboot.
Was there some administrative stuff done by ltauser before the reboot? If
yes what?
