Running multiple sifters

Use the following settings to run multiple instances of the sifter and have all the sifters share some configuration parameters and override others. Running multiple sifters simultaneously allows you to distribute load on very large systems.

To override a particular default parameter, add a prefix to the parameter. For example, to reload the mentor pool for the MovieSift sifter instance at 4 a.m.:
MovieSift.<mentor_set_name>.reload_mentor_pool_at = 0 4 * * *
If you run a sifter with the following setting,
sifter -config MovieSift -conf <lps config file>
that sifter will use theMovieSift.<mentor_set_name>. reload_mentor_pool_at = 0 3 * * * setting.
