We are using cyrus imap 2.1.9 on solaris 2.8 to serve about 30,000 users.
In addition, we are using ipurge to periodically delete old mails 
When we executed ipurge, it took so much time and consumed all of  CPU power.

Our cyrus-imap configuration is
	1. OS : solaris 2.8
	2. mailboxes.db and seen db : skiplist
	3. CPU: 1 x SPARC CPU
	4. RAM : 512
	5. DISK for mailboxes : SCSI single disk

Is there any idea to optimize ipurge ?

Any comment would be highly appreciated.
