One solution is change the priority of gpbs process, with something like
(you need do it as root, and maybe on BSD is different)

        gpbspid=`ps -C gpbs -o pid=`
        renice -5 $gpbspid

To default gpbs is started with priority 0, but you can change it to a
negative priority (-1, -2, ... -15) to make it more faster. Of course,
you can do this with a script. But this script needs root permission to
