On a 1k agent cluster with 45k tasks running with no real network activity other than DCOS components, Spartan was consistently the 2nd highest entry on `top` running around 80%. This is on the leader.mesos node.
According to Deepak Goel navstar and minuteman refresh DNS entries of spartan every 30 secs.
This seems like a high cpu demand for a background process.
It should be noted that the reason we were debugging the resource demands of this node is we were getting slow response times with HTTP 500 errors and timeouts. The demands of this process could exasperate the ability of other critical components on the node.
