Periodically restarting apps on Kubernetes

Failures and downtime are part of our day-to-day life. I had a problem with one of the services that started crashing a few times a week. We noticed that it crashes because the memory usage reaches its limits no matter how high the limit is. Debugging memory leaks is hard and time-consuming. As a temporary fix[^Nothing is more permanent than a temporary solution] we decided to restart the application once a day.
