Sounds like your postmaster process died.

On Linux the most common reason for this has been that the kernel OOM
killer decides to pick on the postmaster. Try to disable memory
overcommit. It's rumored that having too little swap space may result
in the OOM killer firing even when overcommit is off, too.
