It is a virtual machine with an Intel CPU: CPU info from dmesg:

It is kind of difficult to see which sycalls take longer  before and after but
my guess is that it is related to semaphores since it is attempting to get data
from the subprocesses and it uses semaphores for synchronization.

I'm not sure if there is an easy way to see what is taking longer. I'll see if
I can somehow get the information using DTrace.
