I had a similar problem and found that netmon was just plain busy sorting
itself out. I'd inadvertantly allowed the number of objects to become much
larger than the value of ovwdb cache (i.e. 5000). Unfortunately I simply had
to wait...it does take hours!!! I'd do some basic maintenance along the
lines suggested in one of Leslie's earlier posts (i.e. check the object
count with ovobjprint -S) and then take steps to reduce the object count
 e.g. remove old objects that are no longer of any
interest ) to be less than 20% of ovwdb cache.

Anytime I see something like this, my first suspect is DNS. Make sure
nslookups are working, both name and reverse lookups.
