I have no idea what a truss is (besides something you wear when you have
a hernia).

What kind of a system are running on (cpu, ram, amount of virtual memory
currently in use)?  How many messages/minute are you seeing pass through
your system?

Could it be that you are using a great deal of virtual memory (or even a
little on an IDE box)?
