OHGAWD I GOT IT!!!!!!!!
I admit, totally coincidentially but its really FIXED. Today I went to the puter scanning the servers by routine and wondered why the bandwidth is at 100% without any holes.
The only thing I have done is I switched off hyper-threading because the server is at only 20% CPU anyway so I just disabled it.
So its something with linux dealing with hyper-threading. YAY :)
For what it's worth, I was running dual-xeon systems with HT turned on.
But, I have a single process, single-threaded application, so there is not much
scheduling to be done. If you have a large number of threads or processes,
then it would make more sense for turning off HT to have an affect.
