unable to login as oracle user

We have 3 Red Hat 4.4 AS Servers running RAC 10G.  Today one of them had 
load averages of over 160.  But processors were 99% idle.  None of the 
RAC boxes were responding during this time.  I was able to login fine 
(my local user), and sudo su -.  But when I tried to sudo su - oracle, 
it just hung.  Finally rebooting fixed the issue.  As I have been 
looking through log files, this is the only thing "weird" I have found. 
  We only use local authentication on the box.

/var/log/secure:

Thanks for any help anyone can give.
