Don,


stats.allstarlink.org is definitely down. We'll look in to it.

I think you might have just uncovered a weakness in app_rpt. with
statpost. It should not be spawning any more than one process at a time.
If there is a process running, it should just toss out the statpost
update and wait for a specific amount of time for it to finish, if
it never finishes, it should be killed and a new wget process started.

Would you be kind enough to log the issue in Mantis, and paste in the ps
-ax output and suggested fix above?
