It is quite a big session with lots of audio and plugins - but not too hectic. generally idling at 27% usage and 70% RAM
You have Kontakt on both machines then right?

CPU spiking in piano libraries is not uncommon especially if there's a lot of sustained notes going on. Keep in mind that for Kontakt Vienna says to disable/not use the Kontakt memory server (KMS). Also some Kontakt stuff can be heavy on scripting.

The reason I mentioned the internet thing is that maybe the two ethernet connected bits are fighting each other. I had to manually setup the ip address when I had my now dead iMac working as a server to my 2012 MacPro working as a client.

Something you seem to be reticent about answering: what else do you have going on on the MBP while working in PT?
See profile for system details
iMac dead & retired as of 11/4/17
