Given your top snippet shows pbs_server busy whilst Maui
is doing nothing it might be worth checking your Maui logs
at the time to see if it is complaining about not getting
any responses from pbs_server.

Now, as to why that might be happening, could it be a
dodgy node or flakey network ?

Worth looking at the pbs_server logs at the same time..
