The number listed as "waiting" includes all messages that are only partly
delivered. If there are any messages waiting to be scanned (and have been

until there are 100 fully delivered before doing anything.
As only 1 was scanned this time around, that implies that the other 11-1=10
messages are still being delivered and so are not yet ready for scanning.

any better concise wording for it. And now I don't want to change it since
people might be looking for it as part of some log analysis system they
