Loving pfSense in my vSphere environment, but...high CPU...

I have pfSense (latest version) running as a virtual machine in my vSphere environment supporting my internet connection to my lab environment. Pretty simple installation, a few rules, 5 NAT rules, 4 VLANS and 2 LANS ( one of which is the parent for the 4 VLANS).
I have some issues with high CPU usage in the VM guest. This host is only a low end i3 processor I know, but it's the anomaly between VM guest cpu usage and what pfSense reports internally.
ESXi Host details
VM guest details
pfSense system details
Below is Top ( pardon the pun)
The second task is the openvpn task I assume as I'm currently logged into it...

Surely someone at pfSense must know the solution to this issue...
A simple google search suggests I’m certainly not the only person who is suffering this issue!
