Well, as per title, is there any way to improve rancid's speed with so many
devices? At the moment I set PAR_COUNT to 300, so it will connect in
parallel to 300 devices at a time, but the reality is that most time does
not seem to be taken by connecting and retrieving config but by what
happens next in the file processing and git-comitting.

To give you some stats, with current settings it takes around 9 minutes to
do 1200 devices. I have only 1 group with all devices under the same group.

Any trick you might have, please let me know!
