Okay, I'll watch for V4 and restest. It really seems to be limited to
the 8-node system. None of the other systems are showing this.

Yes, probably a fair bit of waking. It's an interative equation solving
code. It's fairly CPU intensive but requires communication for dependent
calculations. That's part of why having them mis-balanced causes such a
large slow down. I think at times everyone else waits for the slow guys.

Sure!
