I recommend that you separate the off-line computation away from the
on-line component.  The reason is that the off-line computation can put a
severe strain on the resources of the machines it runs on.  You can isolate
this load somewhat, but it is better to simply use different machines
unless you are really absolutely desperate for hardware.  Even then, it is
probably more cost effective to drive your off-line resources as hard as
possible and simply use a relatively small machine for the on-line
component.
