This isn't the fileserver at all (so the documentation I pointed you
to is interesting, but not necessarily relevant), but is the vlserver.
 Some of the same suggestions apply, though:

1- are the processes crashing? (bos status, logs, etc)
2- are you having quorum issues? (udebug, logs, etc)
3- can you give more resources to the vlservers?  For example, are
they running on their own VMs?
4- how is your cell configured?  (e.g., do you have 3 vlservers)
