Probably a stupid question:
Is there a possibility of trouble if the optimize job were to run at
the same time as mythfilldatabase?
I'm assuming the two operations could "get along" but it might cause
a timeout on MFDB because some of the optimize steps can take many
I'm following the "suggested next" so I can't predict the precise
time MFDB will run, so I've just been running the optimize manually
every few days after checking.
I guess I could create a script called from a cron job that checked
if MFDB was running before starting to optimize but even then it
could start immediately after the optimize started.
I suspect I'm just being too paranoid, but...
