Followup on Tom’s question:
Are all 7 jobs running over the exact same database with the exact same program, all processing the exact same records?
If not, and I assune this is not the case, what is different in the processes?
Is one of the jobs doing more I/O?
Are six oif the jobs using the same data (thus it would be in memory) and the other job using totally different data so it has to do more disk access?
