My Linux Mint keeps maximising resources and slowly crashing

My Linux Mint 17.2 works fine for about an hour and then it seems to max out the memory and slowly dies. Can somebody help work out the problem / fix? I have 4gb ram + 4gb swap.

Thanks,
Martin

I can help, but I'd probably need ssh access in order to check on what processes are running and causing it to die.

Thanks for the quick answer. My router provided by the ISP has all features removed so I can't port forward or anything :( Is there another way you can access? Teamviewer maybe? Or something better? Thanks in advance, Martin

You can make a reverse ssh tunnel to a VPS like ssh -R 10002:localhost:22 user@example.com. If you make one on DigitalOcean and don't keep it around then you can probably get it for free.

(and after making that tunnel, I can ssh into the VPS and access your mint box that way)
