At Marketo Summit, there was a great presentation by Scott Nash on batch campaigns, and he showed a slide with these average wait times:


Add to List - 36ms

Add to Nurture - 100ms

Change Data Value - 81ms

Change Nurture Cadence - 42ms

Change Nurture Track - 56ms

Change Score - 139ms

I'm trying to understand how 5 seconds for a send email flow step can be accurate. That would mean it takes 138 hours to send 100,000 emails. Am I missing something here?
