You're probably asking Ralf, but I might as well answer as well..


Not using realtime, all cpu/smp options look fine.

CPU is usually pretty idle. Hovering around 90-99% idle.  But the load graphs clearly show a radical increase, where before things were pretty smooth, now they're erratic and much higher. 


ps: we use linux, not freebsd.
