 Kernel profiling or fine-grained timing to figure out where the time
 is going? It is likely to be a pain.

 Figuring out whether this is network-related (e.g. stalls due to lost
 packets, protocol botches, etc.) or vfs-related (lock
 contention/deadlock/etc.) might also be helpful. After all, the
 performance problem might be small instances of the same issue...
 ps -alx should be enough to diagnose this; look for something that
 isn't "tstile". ("tstile" just means "waiting for something else").
