Lets run some numbers.... I love numbers. =]:-)

24-hour period ending 23:59:59 MDT 04/08/97
-------------------------------------------
22838224 * 2^20 keys processed

The big boys
10643096* 2^20 keys processed

The medium sized domains
10445456* 2^20 keys processed

The small domains
1749672* 2^20 keys processed

The small domains are only hunting 1/10 as fast as the big boys but lets do some more math...!

average keys per box per day
22838224/1326= 17223* 2^20 = 18059624448

Benchmark
Pentium 90 MHz -- 454K keys per second -- FreeBSD P5 client.
454000*60*60*24= 39225600000

18059624448 : 39225600000

A P90 running on an idle machine 24hrs/day is twice as fast as the average machine in the hunt.
Which means.... every machine counts!
