  That’s not the intended design.  The only configuration parameter you can adjust is the load_factor.  If that’s set to 100, then it should read packets as fast as it can.

  BUT it’s FIFO, and only as fast as the rest of the server.  i.e. if the server is busy, the packet will take a while to be processed, and the detail file reader will slow down.

 Debug output should help here.  What, exactly, is going on when the detail file reader is doing nothing?
