I can always tell when the problem will occur based upon what happens at boot. There are no error messages, but the slowness begins when the standard daemons are loading. Cron and sshd load just fine, but the delay occurs as sendmail loads, and there is another delay as sendmail-clientmqueue loads. Once that happens I know I'm in trouble thereafter.
You can see if this is a DNS issue by comparing the reactions:
ping hostname ping hostname's-ip-address
In other words, if it's slow to look up a name, but quick when it doesn't have to, you've shown that it is a DNS problem.
