Ah it's a virtual machine! Add to /boot/loader.conf kern.hz="100".
This will make the kernel tick 100 time per second. The default is
1000 times per second, which might be a bit high for your virtual
machine "server". Don't know if it's going to affect your situation,
but it's good to set it this way, anyway.

Most virtual machine users, face problems with timing...

HTH, Nikos
