You're correct. We rsync the CDB files around to our scanners. In
this way, your available disk banwidth scales up with the number
of scanners.

For setups with a large number of scanners where the rsyncs get
annoying, we have an experimental Bayes server that takes a token list
and returns the probability. It works pretty well.
