If you can't fix the loss in your network, then you can lower the delay significantly by lowering the Hurry_timeout in membership.c where it is set around lines 169 and 180.

On a LAN, you can typically safely lower it down to the order of 100's of ms.  On a WAN, depending on how just how wide your WAN is you probably don't want to go below half a second or a second.

Sometimes messages are only received at the recipient after 1 or 2 seconds.
I have a cluster of nodes and what I see is that all the nodes on the cluster stop receiving messages for the exact same period. Even nodes that send messages to other nodes (processes) on the same machine.
Any ideas what may be the possible causes?
