However, fsyncs also happen when queues and the storage sub-system go 
idle, so the interval only kicks in when the system is busy (thus 
ensuring that fsyncs aren't delayed indefinitely).

So I am pretty sure what you are seeing is simply the cost of performing 
an fsync per message. There's nothing that can be done about that except 
buying faster disks / switching to SSDs.
