I've loaded a caching nameserver on this system. Just watching it a few
minutes, it does seem to have improved much. I am still falling about 200
messages behind every few minutes....

My current settings for the batch mode is below.

Max Unscanned Messages Per Scan = 500
Max Unsafe Messages Per Scan = 30

I also tried these at 30/30, 100/50, & 500/100 with no noticeable
difference. Should I just stick with the defaults of 30/30?
