This is a fresh install of Debian 8 (minimal, netinstall). The load average is constantly >1 with sluggish response times, long hang times on login, and so on. I'm really baffled about what could cause it. Disk IO, network IO, and CPU usage are minimal. Nonetheless, the load average does not reflect a freshly installed system and, as mentioned, everything is sluggish.
Ping average is 85ms.
I'm really at a loss as to what could make the system behave so sluggishly. In addition to being a fresh install, it's all new hardware. Any tips or advice on what to look for would be much appreciated.
