You can set affinity on a running task without the need to reboot
the VM or anything.

man (1) taskset

This would allow you to lock a vm to what ever processor it is on
and see if the time stabilizes.

Of course, if this is not a multiprocessor machine (dual core and/or
hyperthreading) then this is not likely to help you.
