Does anyone generate a lot of individual NEXRAD level III products with gpmap_gf? I'm trying to generate real-time plots of NOQ Reflectivity and NOU Velocity from 30 radars in the midwest and its crashing my server after a few hours, even when I only run 3 plots at a time. I'm running GEMPAK6.4.0 on a RHEL 6 machine with 64 GB of memory. I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong and if someone has a better way of doing this.

crashing your server, how? Exhausting memory? kernic panic? Are the processes not going away once running them? How are you running them?
