In a 2.3.15 murder I'm seeing high frontend server cpu usage and I'm 
wondering if it's normal or if there's something I can do to reduce it. 
  What are the bottlenecks that can lead to proxyd pegging a cpu for 
several seconds, particularly during login (using imapproxy to reduce 
logins appears to reduce system load) and when not using TLS?

Frontend's config (trimmed):
