Hello Jim,

This doesn't solve the problem, but we have been able to shred about 330 
tickets per hour, about 4,000 per night. So you should expect faster 
performance than you've been getting.

How about shredding a single ticket while monitoring all the database 
statements that this invokes. It may help you determine exactly what is 
slowing things down.

Good luck,
