[BiO BB] Updating NCBI databases

I had a question regarding regular update of BLAST databases. Is there a
standard way to move the updated databases to the user section, making sure
that the current copy is not already in use ?

Suppose I update the database monthly, but a user might have a big BLAST job
running when my cron script starts the update. This can lead to errors. How
can I prevent that ?
