fedmsg-ircbot throttles when there's too many messages (to avoid flooding). It might be nice for it to report how many messages are queued up for it to send every few minutes... something like:
QUEUE: backlogged by 10000 messages
This would be handy for events like mass tags or builds in koji.
Noting that this feature, if added to moksha, will make this possible: http://threebean.org/blog/threading-moksha/
This is fixed in #246 and should be out in the next release.
