Delayed email because of signing

Hello again all, just curious if anyone has seen any issues with the time it
takes for an email to be signed. After I setup my opendkim with a compiled
sendmail i went from being able to send out 1-2 emails a second to about 1
email every 5 seconds? Strange that there would be such a big delay but I
guess it makes sense since it has to actually modify the message but why so
long? Anyone know of anyway to speed it up, even a few seconds would help!

My sendmail version is 8.14.4
Opendkim version is 2.2.1

here are my opendkim.conf settings:

Canonicalization relaxed/simple
Diagnostics no
InternalHosts /etc/mail/dkim/trusted-hosts
KeepTemporaryFiles no
KeyFile /var/db/dkim/mail.key.pem
LogWhy no
Selector mail
Socket inet:8891_at_localhost
SubDomains yes
Syslog no
TemporaryDirectory /var/tmp
UserID dkim

Please let me know if you need any other information, thanks!
