Sounds like you might be page swapping. Do you have enough RAM?

This link might help:

The problem might also be NFS:

But I would strongly encourage you to read the above .pdf, and familiarize yourself with basic tools like "vmstat", "top", "ps" and friends. It will be a big help to you on this problem, and in the future.

IMHO .. PSM
