I was running 4.6.2 on a Dell Poweredge 2300
It has been running with relatively no probems since it was released.
I recently upgraded to 4.8. At that time I started experiencing as sorts of anomolies. I figured it may have been a jacked upgrade. So I killed the partitions and started from scratch after backing up passwd files and home dirs and such.

Same thing....

The anomoly I am speaking of is slowness. For example. I type pine and it takes at least 15 seconds for it to start. This is remotely and locally. Netstat command takes so long to complete that I never let it finish.  What is going on?  It is not isolated to these two programs. It took over 9 seconds to start Apache. In a nutshell. Every thing is slow. Another example. Logging in.
