voyager performance

Where are trying to get voyager to play a 1.7 meg flash (shockwave).
Playing is working fine the problem is the load time. It takes 12
seconds before it start. Most of that time is apparently
spent “downloading” the file. The file resides on Compact Flash,
I put the .swf file in ram disk (/dev/shmem) time went down to about
4-5 seconds.

What I find very odd is while downloading from ram disk, the CPU
is 50% idle??? Vserver uses 20% and phfont another 10%.

We have disable disk cache to prevent slow down from writting
to the compact flash. This seems to work ok as the vcache directory
stays empty while voyager is running.

Anybody as a clue as to what is going on?
