Ok, so obviously just that snapshot wasn't very useful, sorry.

Several minutes of "vmstat 2" output indicates that the number of
interrupts per second on the NAT gateway ranges between 600 and 1200,
occasionally as low as 540 or as high as 1300.

(Working on getting wireshark in a place where we can monitor both ends.)
