[OSM-dev] API very slow this morning

In my programming experience (with C software, not Apache or Ruby), this 
vague behavior can be caused by lack of other resources e.g. file 
descriptors or sockets which does not show up on top. Leaking of these 
resources is mainly caused when they aren't properly cleaned-up after use.

Maybe you can try commands like 'netstat' and 'lsof' next time...
