Thanks, Daniel. You nailed it. CPU pegs right before and stays pegged until
we kill the process:
(Link to monitoring system graphic:

The only log event prior to the BlockingConnectionPool error is 50 minutes
*2019-05-14 12:03:54,300 - INFO
- Metadata Resolver FileBackedHTTPMetadataResolver ICMD: Next refresh cycle
for metadata provider
<>' will occur on...*

I don't believe we have any JVM core dumps. I'm assuming we'd need to
generate it when in the midst of the pegged CPU condition? If so, is that
the "kill -3" technique or something else?

Thank you!
