I show where the strace output paused for 5+ seconds in the attachments.

So what should I be asking my vps provider?  Is this some network issue?
This happened on a fedora 30 host, and a centos 7 host (vps hosts on same net

Fortunately or unfortunately the problem just went away without any action on
 my part --

In addition to -f as Ken suggested, you can specify the -r
flag to strace to know which syscalls take an unusually long
time.  This can then lead you to check more things such as
network traffic etc. Though it is strange if "show" triggers
any network traffic.
