A couple of sysadmin buddies like to see servers restarted once in awhile, but once per day would be a bit much, methinks. The main thing that I have seen happen is in larger networks of interconnected computers that depend upon services across the network; a NFS file server goes down, and perhaps the automounter gets into an unusual state that can't be cleared by service restarts. But on a largely self-sufficient server, there's so much less of that sort of thing; you should be able to measure reliable uptime in months, not days or weeks.Is there any benefit to reboot the vps account once a day during low traffic hours?
How could one pinpoint the exact script / file causing a memory leak?Memory leak is a term which describes failure to release unused memory, failure to close unused file / network descriptor(s) and so on. In other words this is a programming error which results in wasted resources on the system.
