I've seen CVE-2016-1478 / CSCva35619 hit a few people.  If you're running
an affected version you'll need to upgrade or workaround.  To verify, check
queue size in "show interface" output - if it's a queue wedge you can issue
"show buffers old [dump]" to confirm it is indeed the NTP bug causing your
