System capacity

Immediate thought: if your system gets overloaded handling 20 requests a minute, something's really hosed. I'm used to thinking in terms of rates 10-100x that, and counting them per second not per minute. The problem of course is that the offending software is a commercial package, so we can't dig into it to find out what the problem is and fix it.
