Just out of the curiosity, which NVT was that?

One of the NVT checks actually caused such a load on the drives that it paused the server for 1 minute.  I only found out because some one was giving a demo on one of the hosts being tested at the time and saw the Java web page completly stop.  After 2 minutes they were back with no issue, no data loss.

My end point are running a Java front end with a mysql back end and can sometimes hit high loads just on their own processing.  But still the scans incur far more network traffic then then anything else.
