What does 'p4 monitor show all' show you when the slowdown is happening?
Which Perforce operation seems to start when the slowdown occurs and end
when the slowdown ends?  If your hardware is not being thrashed while
this slowdown occurs, it is most likely a Perforce issue and not a
hardware issue.

I have seen cases where a 'p4 integrate' with embedded wildcards slowed
the server to a crawl.  One user with embedded wildcards in a branchspec
or clientspec can put a very heavy load on the Perforce databases.
