How often do you guys think SRCDS should be restarted? Does it differ with non-orangebox games and orangebox games?

Also, what about Windows Server 2003, how often do you think this should be restarted?

I know, srcds has been running on that server since the system was booted up. Smile
Still is running great with that uptime.

Yes but you are running linux. Windows has major memory leaks. So you should be restarting a Windows Box every 30 days and servers every 24-48 hours.

We're doing around once a week for our servers (which are full most of the time) - srcds instances go down then too...

Hi,

We typically (srcdson/windows) restart the entire box once a week and the gs's every 24 hours. Keeps things fresh.
