I noticed this today . That doesn't always result in failed jobs but
I correlated it to a failure in a timeout in a nova functional job 
and those normally don't have these types of problems.
Note the correlation to when it spikes, midnight and noon it looks like.
The dip on 11/2 and 11/3 was the weekend. And it's mostly OVH nodes. So
they must have some kind of cron or something that hits at those times?
Anecdotally, I'll also note that it seems like the gate is much more
stable this week while the summit is happening. We're actually able to
merge some changes in nova which is kind of amazing given the last month
or so of rechecks we've had to do.
