From a system with very little activity, nothing happening, no disk, no cpu, I have a very high WAIT time.


      ID      GID NAME             NWLD   %USED    %RUN    %SYS   %WAIT %VMWAIT    %RDY   %IDLE  %OVRLP
       1        1 idle               32 1561.35 3200.00    0.00    0.00       - 3200.00    0.00    8.69

Why would this be?
