Uh, 5 seconds timeout?  That's far too low to accomplish any useful amount
of network traffic in the presence of any congestion.  I'm surprised it
worked for you at all.

If you wanted to do that you could recompile with the lower
SCOREBOARD_MAINTENANCE_INTERVAL.

Or maybe there's an adaptive technique we could use.
