On most platforms, signal 6 is SIGABRT.  It is likely the case that an 
assertion failed.  Look at your fileserver logs and see if you can find the 
"assertion failed" message, which will tell you the location of the failed 
assertion.  Note that the message might appear at the _beginning_ of the 
file rather than the end, because of the way it gets written out.

This means the volserver died because the bosserver killed it (signal 15 is 
SIGTERM).  That's normal in a case where the fileserver has exited.
