Frequently on my project server Farm i have to restart the Microsoft Office Project Server Queue Service on the server becasue the queue is hung.. It frequeuntly gets hung on a check in or publish job... i can typically clear out the job with the restarting of this service.. however im having to restart that service 4 or 5 times a day.   How to i digg down to the root cause of the service needing a jump... the logs on the server just give me generic errors

There are some memory leaks in the Queue service. but 4 or 5 times a day is extreme. We have very active servers that are fine for weeks at a time. Is the Application server short on RAM?

Service Pack 2 for Project Server will be released next week (April 28th.) and will improve the queue processing. This may help your problems.

We were going thru a virtualization project at our site... and we decided to take this sever and virtualize it, when we did that we were able to give it more virtual ram and this greatly helped the problem.  

now i have only had to bump the service once in the last 3 weeks

Also, SP2 was released yesterday, and memory leaks in the Project Server Queue service are one of the listed fixes. You should look at installing this.
