Resolver I

@jasonsahli One possibility is that the server is getting bogged down by resource usage spikes. I have had a similar issue occur on two separate occasions. Once when I misconfigured the root .htaccess file and the other when an errant Wordpress plugin decided to go haywire at random intervals. Both situations were difficult to diagnose, but the solutions eventually became apparent via troubleshooting, trial-and-error, and luck. It was difficult because the symptoms did not seem to appear as the direct result of any actions I had taken (the plugin issue occuring probably after an update to the plugin, and the .htaccess situation not propigating until nearly a week after it was edited).

Have you noticed the resources monitors redlining at all?
