What do you mean by "resource exhaustion"?

What happens if you don't reboot the servers? Do they get slow? Do they get errors?

comment dhclient requests filling memory?
I wouldn't read very much into either of those bits of information. RAM being used is normal and doesn't indicate a shortage. (We give a server RAM because we want it to use it to run faster, not because we want to see lots of free RAM to make us feel better.) And your description of a single incident whose diagnosis was reported to you by an uninterested third party wouldn't carry much weight, IMO. I would strongly urge you to avoid limiting your troubleshooting by jumping to a diagnosis. (Especially since you seem to have jumped at least twice now, focusing on DHCLIENT.)

comment 2 EC2 instances have time gap of 25 secs. Is this normal?
You can use a command like ntpdate -q time.windows.com to check the time accuracy. The error will be the number after the word offset, in seconds.

I'd worry about an attack such as an SQL injection attack.

comment dhclient requests filling memory?
What do you mean by "running out of memory"? Are you getting error messages? If it's running out of free memory, that's normal. Since free memory is useless, the system tries as hard as it can to minimize the amount of free memory.

What you do depends on what you want to happen, which you didn't tell us.

comment Why is uploading to S3 so slow?
Start troubleshooting. What does your CPU usage look like while you're uploading? What does a traceroute look like? Is the send queue on your side of the TCP connection nearly full or nearly empty? With a few very simple tests you can quickly narrow down the problem.

comment Swap 95%+ , but a lot of free ram memory
You forgot to tell us what the problem is! Do you have a performance problem? Is there any indication that this isn't the optimum memory usage pattern for your workload, RAM size, and swap size?

comment Websites get hijacked by parking page
That doesn't help, since ns1.knothhosting05.nl and ns2.knothhosting05.nl just direct me to ns1.vlasveldmedia.nl and ns2.vlasveldmedia.nl. The knotthosting05.nl nameservers are wrong to direct me there, and the vlasveldmedia.nl nameservers are wrong for authoritatively answering for a domain they are no longer associated with. If you fix the knothhosting05.nl nameservers, 95% of the problem will go away.

comment Connection to mysql server in SYN_SENT
Sounds like the stateful firewall is out of connection slots. What's the output of /sbin/sysctl -a net.netfilter| egrep "track_max|track_count"?

comment Slow disk transfer rate
You can try booting with various ACPI options to try to work around the problem. If acpi=routeirq works, that's pretty moderate. acpi=off is much more extreme. noapic might help.

comment What is the point of PPPoE?
I think you meant point-to-point. PPPoE is used when you want to implement a point-to-point connection over Ethernet.

comment Slow disk transfer rate
Then that's your problem. It would help a lot to know what 3ware controller you have, what motherboard you have, and what type of interrupt it was. (APIC edge? fasteoi? MSI? etcetera.)
