I see this, too. The billing mediation server at our telecom company is powerful, but runs so many applications that it can get backlogged... and backlogs can be dangerous when data keeps rolling in.
Of course, the main reason we have a backlog is because we invoke multiple Java Virtual Machines. So then, poor responsiveness is due to poor environment or design considerations, or something like that.
Now, the operations guys tell us that if perl was the runtime chosen, there would have been no backlog. But apparently, Perl isn't Buzzword Compliant :(
