When there is a great load on the system and there is a lot of swapping and
thrashing going on, the first thing the system does is try to unload itself,
and the first thing it does is "suspend" process accounting. Usually a sign
of low memory levels, perhaps generated by the release of many jobs at one
time by cron.
