i can take this one...
if you know for example, that your machine went "over its limits" on an
import of a database, compile of "something", or just a batch task... and
you KNOW it does that once at startup, or each night, but you want to
check if it happens again afterward. it's easier to do your heavy
computations, when it's settled, reset counters and see if in "normal
operation", it happens too.

say i have a webserver running , but each morning i need to load some
shitload of pictures to it which makes it prone to memory problems, but i
know, i don't care... it would be nice to reset to 0, then test/see if it
remains 0 for the rest of the time

good reason or not? i don't know, but a reset button on counters is always
a good idea imho :)
