You might consider not doing all scanning for "local" users then. For
example: I don't do SA on outbound (but do virus scanning and
iframe/script/codebase disarming etc) by a wellplaced rulest
"whitelisting"... Obviously, what you can skip is up to your
policy:-). Might "lighten" the load a bit. Also, one could perhaps
look a bit at "tightening down" the postfix "peak throttles", which
usually are pretty forgiving. But you knew that;).
