[OpenSIPS-Users] Fine tuning high CPS and msyql queries

Basically, the application is not processing the received packets as
quickly as it should, so the kernel stores the packets in the buffer so it
doesn’t have to throw them away.

It’s not so difficult to understand. If this is happening all the time, you
won’t solve this by making the buffer bigger. You solve this by figuring
out why the application is not processing the packets fast enough.
