I was already starting to load up a fresh 9.1-STABLE box for other testing, I will also create a stock box (no changes anywhere) and let it idle for a few days to see if the problem is still there. 

I'll report back either way in the next few days with results. 

If I still have problems, I will send the full diags as mentioned below.

>> 2. Please try 9.1-STABLE and see if there is an improvement; there 
>> have been a huge number of changes/fixes to em(4) between 9.1-RELEASE

>> 290-JPSNAP/
>Other output that would be useful on a machine where the current mbuf count is actively very high:
>* vmstat -z
>* netstat -Q
>* netstat -n -x
>It would also be beneficial to provide any sysctl.conf and loader.conf adjustments you do.
