Probably OT: performance hit from razor2

Hi all,

running some tests with scan speed logging enabled, I'm seeing a much
bigger overhead with razor2 compared to Pyzor & dcc, just wondered
whether it was typical?

Here are the results from my simple test of firing batches of 100 mails
at the server & averaging the "Spam checks completed in ..." values for
each batch.

without razor2/dcc/pyzor: 4470 bytes/sec

razor2 only: 1500 bytes/sec

dcc only: 3300 bytes/sec

pyzor only: 3050 bytes/sec

Best regards,
