Another time when a sim restart may be required is when a raw is loaded to a sim. Occasionally, but not always, loading a raw causes avatars to bounce on the land or water of the sim. This has happened within the last few days.
Yes, that's a good example. I think the raw file itself doesn't do it but the combination of raw load and terraform may require a restart in order for everything to be working as expected.
There are a few reasons to have a need to restart a region, and it's always worth trying it if you have some particular problem. I think the main point here though is that there's no general
need to restart a region for performance reasons, and in fact that might have a negative effect at first due to the loss of cached data on a region restart.
