Still fighting with a clients net on this one... NW65SBS with BE91 & GW65
running. Every so often (1x/wk) for about 5-15 minutes, the util will ramp
up to 100%, and NRM is very sluggish. Its rare I've been near a machine to
login to the problem before it magically clears itself and may not be seen
for several days. This time I was close enough to get on remotely. As I was
asked in the past, I went to Monitor --> Kernel --> Busiest Threads. The
top two were both server threads, Server 3 & Server 2 with an occasional
Server 8. The numbers were around 2,000,000 for both these, with the next
highest being around 40,000.

I was able to hop into Profile/Debug and pull up stats on the two threads.
They are:

The odd thing I see there is the reference to USB information. This is a P4
board (865PERL) and I probably would not have turned off the USB support
when it was built. Is that a possible cause for this erratic behavior??
