so then, does it help me to run maxclients at 100, or is that excessive?
i'm unsure how to best tune that number. is there a tool for observing
what venus is doing with its clients?

that's a good question. i'm running slocate 2.6, that came standard
with the redhat install this machine is based on. i added /coda to
updatedb.conf, so perhaps that will help matters. it seems that
updatedb starts in cron at 4:02am, which matches the 4:03am where the
log spew begins.
