Whatever you feel comfortable with, if you have a big machine and a fast
pipe to the net, I would return larger chunks of data, on the order of 1MB
or larger, if you donıt, I would return small chunks of data, say 100K or

One think I would suggest you implement, if you have not already, is the
"Retry-After" to prevent badly behaved harvesters from swamping your system.
