I think that this is "just" some slowdown of node on which job is running. I
noticed it too in some neutron jobs and I checked some. It seems that one API
request is processed for very long time. For example in one of fresh examples:
it was request to nova which caused very long time:

This one is I think the same as we have reported in
Basically we noticed issues with dhcp after resize/migration/shelve of instance
but I didn't have time to investigate it yet.
