I have the same questions for both of you:

could you give some examples of what the rest of the stack has?

what's the stack trace for the pagedaemon thread?

try printing the UVM activity counters in ddb with "show uvmexp",
then continue from ddb and wait 10 seconds, then print the counters again.
by looking at which counters change we can see what (if anything)
the pagedaemon is doing to try to free up some memory.

what's the state of the relevant pools for network activity,
such as mc_cache and mcl_cache, and do those change over time?
you can print these from ddb with "show pool *mb_cache" and
"show pool *mcl_cache".
