Mongod stuck in stop/waiting on Ubuntu 14.04

I installed MongoDB on Ubuntu 14.04 as per the documentation. It runs and works fine, except that it mysteriously stops every few hours and requires a manual restart with service mongod restart to get going again. There’s nothing in the mongod.log when this happens.

In addition, when I restart and then check status with service mongod status, it gives me mongod stop/waiting event hough the application is able to connect to it. I’ve been searching around on how to debug this, but am stuck at this point.
