Hi, Derek

I suspect Sahara can cause it, it started to run on overcloud since my
patch was merged: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/352598/
I don't think it ever ran on jobs, because was either improperly configured
or disabled. And according to reports it's most memory consuming service on
overcloud controllers.
