If you don't see ant Buffer overflow trouble in log it's not a trouble 
of cache size...
And we could guess it's the same style of trouble updadb wake up....

Have you tried to force the client to wake up before the burst  ????
Perhaps something like

cfs strong
cd /coda
ls -lR
echo "=== lets hope :o)"

in you cron....and improve the script ( find / grep /....) to detect if 
your new content is in venus cache.
Hope it would help !

As i'm here i got a question about $>cfs strong....
As the command returns no message, nothings apear in venus.log , and i 
don't see any traffic to the serveur ( any adjusting stuff )....

How could I know i'm in a strong state ?

Moreover $>cfs bw 10000000
always return :
Bogus or missing opcode: type "cfs help" for list

Damned !!! I rtfm... and syntax seems good !!! :-P
