I was earlier part of another team, where all the monolithic apps and microservices are restarted in Production environment every weekend as part of scheduled maintenance.
In my current team, there's no automatic restarts. There are some microservices that haven't been restarted since 2+ years. Isn't this a potential problem? Won't "not restarting services" lead to increased memory consumption at some stage? Don't microservices need frequent restarts as part of maintenance?
On asking the TL, they mentioned that the microservice shouldn't be written in a way that it causes increased memory consumption.
But that's not what we can always control right? Hence we have maintenance windows.
I have 2 other developers working with me on a critical project, plus my mental + physical health is not so good.
I really want to move to a more relaxed workplace, but I feel deadlocked. I'm unable to carve out time from my job.
I have recently not been performing as well as I did last year/early this year due to my mental health and some changes in my personal life, and my manager noticed that too. I got promoted this year only, and if my performance drops, I get compared to my performance last year which led to my promotion. So if I try to avoid work, I'll be noticed further.
