Do you monitor heap usage and virtual memory size of your Java process? I would
look out for increase (which causes slower for tines).
Also it is generally a good idea to turn on GC logging and look into it if a
java process degregades over time
Just BTW: I think Java would not be the right tool to spawn and control sich a
high number of external processes. Maybe it would be better to hand that off to
a more native component.
