That's what I'm going to look into next. First I wanted to see if there was a
way of upping the buffer at an OS level. I did some research and found that by
default Suse sets the receive buffer to 112640 (and this gets doubled to
225280). Which really isn't a lot. I have up'd this and seen improved

The next thing I'm going to do is look into queues. If I was going to do this on
Windows I would probably put it into a MSMQ. Do you or anyone else know of
something I can use under linux?
