We were having issues with pyzor...

An easy way to check.. is to try..

spamassassin -D --lint  you will generally see the slowdown/timeout.

However, you could try other methods in additions:
pyzor ping
razor-check -d  -M <samplemboxmsg>
dccproc -Q -i <samplemboxmsg> -H

I don't know what to do for RBL's since I don't use them.

I had a lot of problems with backed up mail today.  CPU usage was low,
and there was plenty of free memory.  When I changed MailScanner.conf to
Spam Checks = no it quickly processed all the queued mail.  So I assume
that one of the net checks (RBL, Razor, or DCC) was causing problems.
My question is how can I tell when one of the net checks is causing
problems and how can I tell which one?
