Hello List!
I having a problem with a registrar server that has a large number of
registered users. Actually, it's not really even that large, just a few

When the server sends out OPTIONs pings, it is creating a huge spike in
bandwidth that is making the edge router very unhappy. Network interface is
gigabit ethernet and it's essentially sending it out as fast as it can.
Granted it's not a whole lot of data, but it's a very brief spike that the
router doesn't like.

Is there anyway to spread out the requests a little bit? Has anyone else
seen anything like this?
