Then I would suggest that perhaps you are running too many services on
the host?

My philosophy is to keep the host as minimal as possible and run
everything inside a guest (generally one guest per service). The only
two services I run on my hosts are sshd and ntpd. Every other service
that I might want to run on the host can be run inside a guest.

I run sshd on all my machines on a non-standard port (2222 for hosts and
222 for guests) as a way of stopping my logs from filling up with
door-knock attempts which also solves the port conflict issue.
