[Mono-aspnet-list] how to prevent server to stops responding after some time

Mono 2.4 web service runs in Debian virtual maschine with 1 GB RAM with 
Apache and mod_mono. This VM
runs also PostgreSql 8.3 server which is called by web service.

After some months web service stops working: many postgresql server requests
are timed out.

In Mono control panel I clicked restart all server processes and restart
server. I also restarted PostgreSql. Problem persists.

ps shows that there were a number of mono processes running taking a lot of
RAM. After manually  using kill command to abort them problem was resolved.


1. How to prevent this situation to occur in future so that this will be
automatically fixed without human interaction ?
2. I'm planning to use similar VM servers with 256 MB of RAM. Can this
config work with 256 MB RAM ?
