That sounds like a hack, but when the data is constantly in use by a rt app which is
really important the job gets tougher..

Jan, can I get a few pointers about this ? like what exactly limits it (few words) 
Since it's really urgent I'd try to find a solution rather than hacking a shell script to

Thanks for the input! Much appreciated.
