We have an application that has been running fairly smoothly for months now (W2K8, Connect Direct v4.5.01)
Suddenly the "Node" constructor has started taking several minutes (average 3) to execute
Node cdNode = null;
File lcuFile = new File("firstname.lastname@example.org");
cdNode = new Node(lcuFile.getCanonicalPath());
In short bursts (maybe every hour or so) a bunch of times it works "normally" with no delay passing through this section of code. And then as unpredictably as it started flowing quickly, it goes back to being a pain. We've done warm, cold restarts, even bounced the box itself to no avail.
