4am lag

Pretty much every single night, at 4am (EST) the game lags.

And by lags, big time lag. Machine lag, since nothing passes in the game during this 10-20 minute period, and that the GDB is still fully functional and pings are at 0 packet loss.

Is there perhaps some cron scrip set up, that's completely ganking the machine for this 10-20 minute period each and every night? Because this is definitely not due to ISP issues.

I'd be surprised if it were simply a cron job, also, since the mud is not tightly bound to disc I/O and runs in only two threads (whereas ginka has 4 CPUs).
