This reminds me strongly of numerous past threads on this list,
as well as problems we've had on our own Ruffians, related to 
klogd/syslogd getting out of control.  Do a top and check if
klogd and/or syslog are not chewing up most of your CPU cycles.

Various remedies were proposed.  A quick and dirty one (that has
always worked for us) is to simply kill klogd/syslogd.

If you can't find anything in the archives on this, I can send
you a collection of 200+ messages related to this topic from my
own archive.

Hope this helps,
