benefits of reboot machine : LUSENET : DBAzine : One Thread

What is the benefits of regular box reboot to Oracle database? I am trying to convince our system administrator to have regular machine reboot, in ordre to do that I have to list all the benefits that Oracle database can get. In the past I had one db on UNIX box that had not been reboot for 11 months, and the db had some performance problem first, then died. After reboot machine, it clears up many stuff, and database does not having any problem, and performance gets better too. Since then we setup a monthly machine reboot, and that seems solved many portential problem. Please list all the benefits of machine reboot that you can think of or you had experices.

Thanks in advance, Yi
