That's it! There was a problem with name to address resolution against nameserver, my host name was not resolvable from /etc/hosts. Apparently 45 second timeouts are characteristic in this case.
I put the following in /etc/hosts which solved it:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.my.domain hostname hostname.my.domain
::1 localhost localhost.my.domain hostname hostname.my.domain
10.10.10.10 dns-hostname dns-hostname.my.domain
so all interprocess trades are kept inside host itself.
Thanks to everyone for suggestions
