VM and nNode status bogus

Since a few days, my 2nd PVE node cannot display its status, and I cannot access the VMs (shell) from the web gui. Everything seems to work fine, though.
What could be the reason for this kind of problem?
Note that on both nodes, I run the latest Proxmox for which I used the update procedure as described in the Wiki, and it worked well, but pve2 is weird since a few days.
The VMs on it run fine, though, and I can log in via SSH, but not via the web GUI.

this can happen if the 'pvestatd' daemon is not providing current information
the most common cause is that there is some storage defined for which the status check is hanging (e.g. for nfs)
thanks. I restarted pvestatd service and now the pve2 node looks good. I don't know what caused pvestatd to hang or crash, but it was for sure not the storage because the storage works just fine. However, restarting the pvestatd service solved the problem and now everything looks good again.
