Your description sounds as if hobbitd_rrd goes into some loop.  That would 
explain why strace shows nothing (strace only shows system call activity - 
if an application is looping in user-mode it won't show any system call 

The next time it happens, could you kill it with "kill -ABRT" ? That 
should cause it to dump core, and that might give a clue as to where
it is looping.

> henrik, could this be a OS issue or more a hobbitd_rrd problem ?

hobbitd_rrd, I'm afraid.
