Have a look at "monit". Easy to configure checks/restarting, has web interface to restart services manually if you wish. Note that "just" restarting dying services usually is like treating symptoms instead of addressing the cause.

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say. Is there a detail that needs elaborating on or a question that needs answering?

could this just be configured if a service that needs to be restarted at a given time length also say once a night..

Asterisk to be more specific....

Monit checks conditions and then starts / stops services according to what you specify, and can additionally send alerts to log, email (no use if your 'net is down) or pager. Have a look at the Monit docs for configuration details and http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/index.php?page=Asterisk+Starting+and+Stopping if you want to see an Asterisk example.

"Restart once at night" sounds more like a cronjob to me.
