German term or phrase: Hexenleiter
Was wondering whether there was a specific IT related translation of Hexenleiter.. Whether a different analogy is used in EN..

Context: IT process chains
"Bei Prozessketten ist die Performance der Funktion "Prüfen" sehr schlecht, falls die Kette die Form einer Hexenleiter hat (viele parallele Prozesse, welche durch einen Sammelprozess zusammengefasst werden und sich dann wieder in viele parallele Prozesse aufspalten,ggf. sogar mehrmals)"

Witch's ladder
Explanation:
"...Witch's Ladder:
1. A type of knot magic in which charms are knotted or braided with specific magical intention into cords, making a powerful talisman.
2. A cord with 40 knots in it or a string of 40 beads, used as a meditation device or aid to concentration. .."

I know the link is not IT, but your term seems to mean the same thing...
