Insane load averages

I have built an OpenSolaris IPS (Image Package Repository) in a VirtualBox VM. This is so I can try and replicate the physical server on other VirtualBox VM’s and then possibly on a spare physical system (Intel Core 2 QUAD Q6600 w/8GB RAM). I have the package .iso file rsyncing to the filesystem and look what happened to the load averages. The VM is configured with 4 cores.
