Traffic would have been at an ebb on the 16th, and rising on the 29th, so I don’t think it’s sheer volume - as you say, there must be something *in* the traffic. Or more likely, a sequence of things, otherwise I expect 2.2 would be vomiting all over my RAM far more often.

Another question I had is if you're only seeing it on a couple of worker processes or if it's all of them?

That might narrow it down a bit to tell us if it's just a single connection doing something weird that is causing it or if it's something larger.
