100 Megs of memory is not really that much..
Reason for this is probably badly configured printer drivers. I would
upgrade them all to latestm, unless you have canon in which case i
would go with latest PS and PCL5e not by any means use canon PCL6
drivers they are b0rked. Canon doens't even recoomend them.

if not you could run a software like bmc patrol and if memory goes
over a set value fire a net stop / net start, or if it refuses to stop
a kill / net start.

I would probably only restart the spooler at regular intervals if I
saw it as a problem...
