as long as zip file is not above couple megs, I think you can email me to
andrey<dot>tcherepanov<at>gmail<dot>com . Or, even better, put it on
vault, so if somebody else wants to rerun them on their machine can do it

I think I will be able to run them all, just create a batch script that
will run them in any sequence that you feel like. Just don't override
result files with each run, so if time will permit I will rerun them more
One thing that I am not sure is if you need completely clean machine (no
other processes running)? I am asking because these machines are parts of
the db clusters (standby node in the active-passive cluster), and might
have some small processes running anyway.
In regards of cores and cpus and hyperthreading -- I will add full specs
of the machines to the results.

You are very welcome.
