As a user of Parallels since the early beta days, I can say that I
haven't seen that behavior.
I have a theory.
Do you have your parallels VMs set to give idle CPU time to OSX or
the VM? I have mine set to OSX.
Do you need every active VM to be 'running' all the time? I use my
set up to do security simulations, and when I have an image that's
not needed at the moment I 'stop' it.
One other point: if you don't have at least 2GB of RAM, you may be in
swap space hell. This alone will jitter the CPU and disk I/O to
Curious to hear what your set up is, what VM OSs you use, and how
much RAM you have assigned to each.
