Ho, ho, ho, Sir.  Your levity is well taken (and sorely needed) on this thread
;-)!  As I stated earlier, you can establish your processing requirements by
period and submit a job via your scheduler of choice to optimize pools for
that period.  Spend all day for a couple of weeks to establish the parameters
and programs to change them, then spend your tuner money going to COMMON!
