why are the messages not removed from the buffer when they are processed? or are 
they and there's simply too many messages coming in to handle?

how large is the buffer? can it be made larger to handle the larger amount of 
message traffic?

what problem(s) will requesting devices run into when there is no response to 
their query when the message is flushed?

would fixing/solving (one of?) the above be better than flushing?
