High CPU usage at startup

When I run ./launch-taiga the machine sits at 100% usage for over an hour!

There are 3 processes chewing up the CPU. Running "ps aux" I see them as ...

/opt/venv/bin/python /opt/venv/bin/gunicorn taiga.wsgi:application --name taiga_api --bind --workers 3 --worker-tmp-dir /dev/shm --log-level=info --access-logfile -

After this period CPU usage settles down to a usable level.

I suspected this behaviour was either due to not having enough RAM, or perhaps it was because I was simply rebooting my server (so the Taiga servers were cleaning up after a dirty stop)

I did 2 things which seemed to help. 
  1. I increased the VPS RAM from 1Gb to 2Gb.
  2. Rather than just rebooting the VPS I did a "docker stop" on all the containers first
