You can run the backend at 0% idle and still not cause
delays in the frontend. Just be conservative about how you setup
jobs in terms of cpu usage and maximum concurrent jobs.
I've been running a script on my backend for about 36
hours that has kept the box at near 0% idle all that time
without any negative impact on the frontend. That job's just
running at a nice level of 10. My other commflag jobs run
at a nice level of 17.
