Terrible lag where none was there before.

I have checked our boxes resources and nothing is out of range.

It has been driving me crazy!

Please let me know if it is PB as this lag is causing me much grief.

If it is PB I will disable it as well.

Speaking of which, has anyone else had reports of really bad server lag 
in the last couple of weeks? I'm not talking network latency.. one of 
our players has a network ping of 9ms, so that's not it.. he (as well as 
many others) have complained about the server apparently running 
sluggishly. Server cpu never goes over 40%.. I watched the console and 
the server FPS was high, and utilitization reasonable.. On a whim, I've 
disabled PB and so far, the reports seem to have indicated that the 
problem is solved, although I'm not willing to take this as 100% proof 
yet.. Mmm, 100% proof.. er, anyway, has anyone else seen similar behaviour?
