Hi Jon,

When was the last time you rebuilt your history file from scratch?

On my server, we were dropping from an average of ~15Mbps incoming 
down below 5 during expiry (between 1-2 hours).  I shut the server 
down, nuked the history files, rebuilt them from scratch, and have 
had much better overnight performance since (last night we dropped to 
12Mbps during news.daily)  I have a 150GB spool, and right now 
history is running about 525MB.
