Until recently I ran a 1.8Ghz box with 512RAM, and with so little RAM I found it helpful to reboot weekly. Now I'm running a RedHat 2.4Ghz box with 1GB RAM (and only 60 active accounts) and am having no RAM, swap, or CPU problems. Do other users reboot periodically anyway, once a week or once a month? I've always felt that regular reboots just keep things clean, and they seem to keep my home MacOSX healthy -- but am I being superstitious? Should I just wait until my swap fills up or other problems arise, and then reboot?
Thanks. I know it's kinda a dumb question, but I'm curious what other sysadmins do.
