I have a similar issu in a 5-node cluster, upgraded a few weeks ago from 
the no-subscription repo:

When i migrate a bunch of vms to another server, some of them reach 
90-100% cpu after a while and are not responding until I do a "reset", 
then it works again

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / With best regards
