I have been having this off and on problem with my FreeBSD server for some time now, and I haven't been able to track down the cause. Bottom line: network throughput between local boxes is around 200KB/ s on a 100MBs network. This will last for a few hours and then quietly return to the ~2MB/s I am used to. (Speed according to scp). I have used netstat -anf inet, sockstat -4, ps auxww, and top to see what is running, but I see nothing obvious. I do see the occasional

fxp0: link state changed to DOWN
fxp0: link state changed to UP

in my dmesg. Anyone have any suggestions on how to track this thing down?
