Just thought of something... are any of these virtual machines or
blade servers? If virtual machines, you will *never* get reasonable
time on them because of shared interrupts. That's just one of the
trade-offs with VMs. The best we've seen is about 50ms average offset
in VMs on lightly loaded hosts.

If they are blade servers, they may also very well have a shared
netoworking architecture that causes the behavior you are seeing.
