Hello all,
as we upgraded all our DCs to 4.13 before I could gather all the data 
for a bug report, here is what we have seen.

-- We are using the Sernet Packages
-- 4.12 on Centos 7 did not show this behaviour
-- The problem did not show after a reboot. It took 6-7 days running and 
the CPU load started to increase then. I saw some time outs on slower 
VMs. There I increased the vCPU number to 8 and I could prolong the time 
until there was a noticeable impact (Login by ssh took very long).
-- After a restart of the service everything went back to normal for 6-7 
days). Then again CPU load increased continuously.
-- Disabling audit logging also prolonged the time until we saw any 
impact. But that probably just reduced the load.
-- I suspected it has something todo with gnu-tls but could never prove it.
