That question is really difficult to answer in the abstract. It makes a 
big difference what those jobs are doing. Are they database-intensive? Or 
using up CPU time in Interchange? Why is it interfering with your normal 
ecommerce operations? Do the jobs always run independently of each other 
or do they sometimes overlap? Are they literally Interchange "Jobs"? Or 
just cron jobs that hit an Interchange-served URL?
