[Mailman-Users] reboot servers

I have several vps servers with very limited resources running several large mailman lists, n these servers keep stopping from responding n sometimes mailq shows several errors like: too many open files in the system and not enough resourses ... etc.

so every hour I do the following:

mailmanctl stop
postfix stop

to free up the system resources, and eventually the mailq shows empty n the mail gets delivered..

is that a good thing I’m doing? for I can’t afford to upgrade the hardware, is there a better solution? is there any side effects??
