OK, putting the jobs into the background and splitting the script into
two files drove my load average up to 14...so I have made a deal with
marketing to stagger the reports. Next question is really bugging me
I want to exclude the list of hosts from the ABC site..so every night I
am wgetting them and and running sed to make a list
but when I have an exclusion HOSTEXCLUDE REGEXPI:"host name" -- i.e a
gap....analog throws up an error saying that there are too many
arguments in the configuration.
Any done this before,
