comment How do I cache request-tracker4?
Yes, I've already done that. I suppose I should have mentioned that in my question. The problem is that there are a lot of resources that are either referenced by CSS or loaded dynamically via javascript, and they are not cached. Images don't seem to be my problem, it's apparently un-cacheable CSS and JS.

comment Postmaster uses excessive CPU and Disk Writes
Does this happen purely when a connection is opened? What precedes this behavior? Do you have any triggers on the table(s) that you are inserting into?

comment How do I get ssh to run in the background without using -f?
So, there are three levels: main script --> wrapper --> tunnel. The ssh tunnel isn't independant of the wrapping script. If I actually daemonize the tunnel I can't capture its PID. So, I just run it in the background of the wrapper script, and daemonize the wrapper script instead. Because the tunnel is a child of the wrapper, killing the wrapper terminates the tunnel.

comment How do I get ssh to run in the background without using -f?
erm..no. I want to daemonize the script. I don't care if the script itself keeps running, but I don't want for the shell in which it was invoked to have to wait for it to finish.

disown is bash specific, and doesn't really offer any different results than nohup or setsid (which are not bash-specific). However, it turns out that redirecting all output from ssh to /dev/null allows all of these methods (nohup, setsid, disown) to work as expected.
