I have a Ubuntu 10.04 Server and for some reason it always seems to exhibit an intermittent delay whenever performing CRUD operations on the mySQL database. Most Post commands are executed within a normal amount of milliseconds, but when there is a delay it always seems to be for about 4.5 seconds. This is not a busy, public server so it shouldn't be a matter of server load being the problem. The best way for you to understand what I am trying to explain is for me to show you. So without further delay, please take a quick look at these couple of short videos:

Can anyone give me any ideas why this is happening and what to try to resolve it?
