So, I am running 7.1.1 on an Ubuntu 10.04LTS VMWare image.

And I noticed recently that the web interface seems to "throttle". Meaning that that it occasionally will stall and take a long time to process a request.

Now I happen to have the console of the server running and I can see the server processes running and the console remains interactive which my web client appears to be "hung".

Any ideas on what I can do to figure out what is going on?
