-> } I am talking especially about memory needings - my expireover on 22gb spool

-> The reason why expire is too slow on tradspool is
-> expire examines the existence of article to purge
-> overview and history.  So, it's rather necessary
-> to have faster disk I/O than memory.

I think I should have no(less?) problem with disk i/o. I use expire on
newsgroup names so this is also something very ineffective, it seems.

may I know, how does expire/expireover work in this cases? is there
something that makes it use so much memory?
