It is better on resources to have updates performed via cron,
especially for large archives. Although mhonarc supports adding
messages as they go in, I personally advice against this approach since
it adds more risk for problems to occur and does not work well for
high-traffic mailing lists.
The FAQ provides a start on how to process ezmlm archives. For
performance, you can write a front-end that stats directories and
only passes the directories to mhonarc that have been modified
within last X seconds/minutes/hours/whatever to avoid unnecessary
scanning of older directories.
