1kHz timer behavior on Cyclone V

I am running a 1kHz timer test on the Altera Cyclone V dev board. I am trying to measure the average time period between the timer firing, and any variance on that latency.
I'm seeing an average of 1003 microseconds between the timer firing. About once a second, I see the maximum time between the timer firing go up to 2500-3000 microseconds.
I'm using rtems_clock_get_uptime_nanoseconds() to measure the time that the timer fires. I have CONFIGURE_MICROSECONDS_PER_TICK set to 500.
Has anyone else seen this (or something similar)? Any ideas what might be happening here?
