No idea....

However, for troubleshooting you can try at least one of two approaches...
First, determine what cron jobs are being at run 4AM and then do one
(potentially both) of the following.

1.  Run the jobs manually one at a time.

2.  Disable all the jobs from running except one and then enable one per day
until you have problems.
