first and foremost, your server doesnt meet minimum requirements as described in hardware reference.
second, why not spread your searches across the clock? for example, instead of running your searches on minute 30 and 60 / 0
run them on minute 1,2,3,4 ... 31,32,33,34 ...
then use the earliest and latest attributes to align the data
