Bug Description

HA master jobs are failing very often with this error

We found some general performance issues during a debug session, but most of them impact on CPU, not memory.

Thomas Herve was suggesting to tweak down httpd config to reduce limits for some services, and free some memory.

A shallow memory utilization analysis showd no particular memory eaters. In each controller, mysqld takes ~6%, http ~3%, and there's a long list of processes at 0-2%. Not easy to understand if any of the process is taking more memory than it should.

This is still happening, not very often, but still happening. I think it happens when test env is under heavy load. Downgrading to High since it's not blocking.
