Hi Steve,

please first tell us your Torque version.
Older versions were running in "sync" mode for their filehandles, 
whereas newer ones usually dont't.

Then please also tell us your kernel version/OS, memory size and 
hardware (hardware RAID? on-board cache controller?).

There are a handful of knobs where you can improve the situation.

My system can handle a fair amount of submissions before it slows down.
