If you accumulate lots of queue which takes long time; there
are at least two possible reasons:
- you absolutely run out of horse-power (router process(es) are
running all the time at 30-50% cpu share)
At a N-CPU system you could run up to N parallel routers,
or perhaps a few short, if you have *lots* of processors..
At a quad cpu system: 2-3 routers, no reason to have more
than 4 routers; leave something for the scheduler and
- your router script is doing some DNS lookups which don't
resolve immediately, rather they time out (cpu share 1-2%)
for this second case running more parallel routers can help,
although fixing the script so that router does not do DNS
lookups could be more productive.
