Weird issue: Proxmox whole cluster failed at arount 2pm. Putty working but none of the 5 webpage worked

At around 2pm, all proxmox web page started giving "timeout".
I was able to go in with putty but not the web interface.
I did a service pveproxy restart on each blades and the web page are accessible but now it does not accept any of our passwords.
maybe not related but I also have this:

Any idea?
is the time of the server/client correct?
I did not check the ntp configs but visually all 5 srv in that cluster are within under 1 sec in synch.
I Proxmox takes its time from the local linux: should be good

Can a time issue of a few seconds cause the whole cluster service and parts of the kernal to fail?
