Lot of Tasks in Delayed State in System Delivery Engine

In System Delivery Engine there are a lot of Tasks in red with Delayed State.


Client Automation 14.0, 14.0 SP2 and 14.5 CU1


This could have multiple causes but one possible cause is when plugin Notification Server (cfnotsrvd) is receiving too many messages.
camstat -n | find /I "U-NS"
returns a queue U-NS with a big value for QLEN
Example :
Application           proto state  port  Qlen  m/sent  m/recv  retry  disc hold
---------------       ----- ----- ----- ----- ------- ------- ------ ----- ----
U-NS                    tcp   CON  4105   234  603737 8117451      0     0   60

cmengine.exe process are sending a lot of Notification message (SOFTWARE_UPDATED) when it collects Intellisig Software Inventory..
This overloads the U-NS queue and other notifications are taking time to be processed.
This is due by a comparison of Software Version with different format (x.y.0.0 and x.y) 
- In Engine logs we could see this :
