When I type the command 'w' it holds for a while before printing the output. There is no firewall in the system, load average is below 0.8 and I suspect
it is something else. Any thoughts on this.

The 'w' command attempts to look up the hostnames for any users which are remotely logged in.

If you encounter a significant delay, that suggests that reverse DNS (aka PTR record lookups) is not properly configured or is performing slowly in your situation.
