Investigation of regular high load on unused machines every 7 hours

We recently decided to make our DNS infrastructure inside each of our core data centers more robust and therefore installed three virtual servers on three different hypervisors to function as DC-local recursive DNS servers. We chose an unbound DNS recursive resolver for this task, as we had positive experience with it from the past and we already had collectd scripts for its performance monitoring, as well as the necessary puppet modules.
