I doubt that would help much. I still think it might be a DNS resolving
problem. Is it doing lots of IO, lots of disk, lots of CPU or what? What
does "nice top" produce? Have you got lots of processes trying to run, or
are they all waiting on disk or net?

You can use "top" and "sar" to work out what your machine is doing.
