Yes, occasionally.  Such hard crashes were more frequent in the past, and 
we are running much more and bigger jobs now.

It often helps to modify ML_OPTIONS a bit, such as -H for the initial heap

Is this the machine that is producing these test results?


There used to be much less fluctuation with AFP on the hardware at TUM, 
IIRC. Since the charts are derived from the "Finished" status it might 
also involve the file-system.  Instead the inner "Timing" could be used to 
get closer to the raw CPU characteristics.  Mira should also contain that
