Performance issues: Console hang and process spawning


My instance is experiencing a severe performance hit currently, where it's unable to consistently use the full computing power available. It seems to be due to delays in spawning new processes, as my computing script requires that new processes are spawned as old ones finish. I experience a similar hang-up when performing actions in the command line through ssh. It's not a heavy amount of processes I'm spawning per second, I'm trying to run 64 processes simultaneously, that each take about 5-10 seconds to complete.

What might be the cause of this, and is it something fixable from my end?

I swapped out the cold hdd used for an ssd to test if that was better. It seems to have fixed the issue. Although I suspect the throughput limit on the hdd was not from anything on my end.
