It's not quite all it does - it 'heartbeats' to the starter as well as
during the run...

It can be a pain if you are submitting hundreds of concurrent jobs on
a large farm but you may want to consider whether or not your
submitting machine can handle that and see about splitting the
submission load...

There was a previous thread concerning tweaking to increase the number
of shadows that can run concurrently, that might help you.
