Just a thought. You may want to consider having the CGI process just queue a request to a daemon to prevent your server/database being overloaded by multiple simultaneous requests. You would simply do an insert into a request queue table with any necessary parameters, and have the daemon periodically check for new requests.

    Right. And if you use a cron job to run a simple script as often as required, you don't even have to write a daemon.
