How many events per minute are each handling, and HF-2 specifically. Also, how many forwarders total is HF02 handling? HF02 is refusing to allow other connections to come through, or one/many of its queues are filling up and it's telling HF01 to stop momentarily. If you can provide more information about your environment then a better answer can be provided.
