tail of multiple files

I am using tail from the textutils 2.0 package on HP-UX 11.0.
I have an application that runs multiple instances on the same system, each
instance writes to a separate logfile. I then run a GNU tail job from cron which
does a tail -q -f on all the logfiles (typically 5-8) and writes them all to one
consolidated log file. The problem is that there seems to be a delay in the
messages being logged by the tail into the consolidated log file, sometimes as
long as 8 minutes. What seems to happen is the tail seems to write out all the
information in one large block.
Any ideas (and is this the right place to be writing to).
Best regards,
