For the benefit of others, this issue was eventually traced to a layer 3 switch outside of OpenStack that had overflowed its ARP cache. New entries were not being cached, leading to slow performance, and as old entries were aged out, eventually there was space for the new ones at which point performance returned to normal for that instance. The issue was resolved by reconfiguring the switch with a larger ARP cache.
