I've been running texpire weekly since installing leafnode 1.whatever back in, um, 2005, with no problems.

The machine started life as a Duron something-or-other running Solaris 10, and has since been upgraded a couple of times, currently running on a dual core Pentium, running Solaris 10 update 9.

Space was not a problem as it was on a 320Gb drive of its own, since upgraded in 2006 to a zfs file system on a 1.8Tb pool.

I have "expire = 120" in the configuration, I think I started with it set to 400 (or possibly 999!!!), in my environment that eventually took about 12 hours to complete, I reduced it to the current 120 and it now takes about a minute to run, keeping around 50000 articles using about a gigabyte, and with about 50 Mb of traffic a week.

I think when you need to run texpire has more to do with how much traffic, storage, and crunch you have, rather than simply daily/weekly/monthly.
