can you reboot the entire system? I reboot mine every 3-4 weeks early morning.

It was a suggestion:)

From my experience, a rebooted server works better especially after having performance issues with a certain program.

Yikes! No restart!

Depending on the distro you're using a simple restart command should do it. Google says on solaris something like this:
svcadm restart java
or svcadm restart javad

or maybe svcadm restart tomcatd
whatever the name of your java daemon is - put that in the command. That should gracefully restart the java server.

Don't restart the whole server. That can go badly, particularly if something doesn't come back to life - you've now got an offline server. There's very little need to restart most nix servers.
