Original question:

The replies I received pointed me to some websites with tuning

There was also some indication that 3.62 has performance issues that
were resolved in 3.63.

Also, we determined that NES was writing to logs in /tmp, which we
believe might have exacerbated some IO problems we were seeing with swap
