We get those here (timeout problems), too. One is the result of SQL Server composing documents and emailing them as reports - they throw a timeout, but apparently, they succeed. Some, due to the many table and hundreds of thousands of records (as table scans) just go too far.

When the users are tired of that, they don't use filters at all and send back so much data that php throws and out-of-memory exception.

Actually, we can beat most of these into submission - but they always find a new way to mess with us. If those run out? Management will request even more complex queries and push the failure back to SQL.

I believe the operent term is "archives" ?
