The most notable example was where we tried to update user names, of which there were something like 400,000. We tried to do all of them in parallel, which meant that Node opened up too many connections, hit the 1.5GB memory, and locked up the site. Worse, we were running this job on an interval, so YASP would just simply stop responding 5 minutes after starting up.
