Thanks for the help!
The files have been uploaded:
One thing to note:  these screenshots are completely unretouched, no Photoshop!
You will note the max out of both the CPUs while "top" shows little simultaneous usage of the CPUs.
You will also notice that the network is not in use and that the memory, 8G, is little used.

Any suggestions as to what could be going on would be appreciated!!!
Thank you!
