Re: Load Balancing with MAXCPU exhibits different locking behavior

Thanks for the hint. I'm still interested in an explanation what
really happens here. Any takers? Thanks!
Btw, the test with MAXCPU=2 also exibits similar behavior: four bulk
loads started in parallel, only two active import tasks and they seem
to hang. Also there are numerous lock collisions (~350 at the
moment). There also seem to be only two processes loadercli although
four were started concurrently (via dbmcli) and there is no message of
termination yet. When the process finally terminates I'll post error
