FMSE Crashing

I have a server on AWS that is fairly busy.  The FMSE ( FileMaker Script Engine ) crashes regularly and I think I know why but I want to just get a 2nd opinion.

The application in question saves reports to the servers "documents" folder, a system script every so often uploads those reports to an FTP and then deletes the reports.  I think that the script engine crashes when these two things attempt to touch the same file at the same time, e.g. a file is being saved to the server at the same time as the system script is trying to delete said file.

I have edited the system script so that won't happen again.


I really don't want the FMSE to crash again.  Do you think that would be the issue, or is this something that others have come across and have found a differing solution (e.g. re-install FMServer) to fix the problem?


Just note that when the script engine crashes no PSOS or server side scripts run until I use the command line to restart it.  fmsadmin restart FMSE
