entropy_avail

If it returns anything less than 100-200, you have a problem. Try installing rng-tools, or generating I/O, like large find operations. Linux normally uses keyboard and mouse input to generate entropy on systems without random number generators, and this isn’t very handy for dedicated servers.

Reading entropy:

cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
