Running samba sernet 4.1.6-7, I've noticed the load avg slowly / steadily
creeping up (.e.g > 100). I'm now noticing that several smbd processes are
at 100%. I don't actually notice that much bandwidth usage on the system
(e.g. iptraf/iftop). Any idea what's causing this?

Restarting smbd helps for a few days, but then the high load avg returns.
