im curious to see what is said about this as well... doesnt the system handle cpu
It does but the point is that it just doesn't start new tasks if there's already 10 tasks taking 100% CPU. Instead get those done before getting next one in works.
Well.. all the tasks that start something your afraid of entering the infinite loop could throw out a 'hey im going in the cave' record somewhere.. and then a seperate task
once or twice a day to make sure that everyone that went into a cave came out and took down their own flag.
That could work. Mainly I'm afraid of the 3rd party stuff that might go apeshit. I have some exec stuff there that I just can't avoid.
is this on a *amp box?
Kinda.. basic PHP & MySQL on mainly Debian.
