shib users:

  I've inherited a Shibboleth service that includes 3 IdP.  There is a cron job on each machine to restart tomcat automatically once a week, on different days, for each machine.  I can't find any discussion as to why this was setup this way.  Is it normal or recommended for a high traffic IdP tomcat instance to be restarted regularly and I'm just missing something in the Productionalization section on the wiki?

Thanks for any insight,
