So you mean everything works ok as long as messages are saved into only
a few mailboxes, but once there comes a burst of messages to lots of
different mailboxes the load increases?
Is it just one node doing the writes or all 3 at the same time? If all
3, does it work better if only 1 is doing it?
How long are the deliver processes running? If they're there long enough
to be straced, check what syscalls are taking the longest.
