Good Practice Question..
Posted on 2011-02-17
Forgive me for the following noob question ... I am still nailing the basics of running a server with hosted services.
My Question: is it good practice to restart services on a server (for me my server is Windows 2008) on a scheduled basis or to keep them running until they crash or go wrong? Will restarting them make any difference to their effectiveness or efficiency, or reduce the chances for said services crashing? Or is it better practice to just restart the server altogether?
My question logic is based on the good old turn it off/turn it on approach.
