The random URL I mentioned above no longer shows up in the tcpdump output (because it gets resolved locally via /etc/hosts I guess) My WP plugins - Akismet, Jetpack, All in one SEO pack, SyntaxHighlighter, Wordpress Importer and WP-phpMyAdmin

Thanks for the command, I was exploring tcpdump as well. And wow, that really seems to be relevant. I noticed that whenever I clear my cookies, there's a bizarre lookup that happens (output of tcpdump below) 07:01:58.836219 IP 10.28.95.189.45527 > 172.16.0.23.domain: 19169+ A? f528764d624db129b32c21fbca0cb8d6.com Just as a temporary hack, I pointed this random URL (f528764d624db129b32c21fbca0cb8d6.com) to 127.0.0.1 in my /etc/hosts file and it fixed the issue! Any insights as to what this could be? Is this wordpress/ec2 specific by any chance? I'm really curious to know!

Fair point, DNS lookups from the server could be the issue. How do I check on outgoing requests though? Is there any specific tool I could use?
