Do you have statistics about your CPU and I/O load? Both can
cause a system to become unresponsive. Using swap will start
in case the RAM is "full", and because you have three mechanisms
of swap on the same disk (ada0), this could be the reason: You
have two swap partitions and a swap file, all of them residing
on the same disk, and all of them are in use, so that could be
the reason for I/O load...
