Yes. That was something I tried first. But it did not change those
warnings much (I have not really measured or counted them but I
believe that there is the same amount of them in a day with one or two
processors enabled).

The only time I really see increase in CPU % (in top output on
FreeBSD) is when I send HUP signal - then it gets much over 100 % for
a few seconds.

Yes. But the system really does not seem busy.

top reports 369M of total memory footprint. It has 3 threads. There
are around 14000 TCP connections established (I can count this as the
system has a dedicated IP address for Tor traffic).

Could it be a memory use bound? So that memory access cannot keep with
the use? And this is why the CPU is not maxed?
