With this many databases and this high of a statistics target, running
in a VM, suspecting autovacuum seems reasonable. You might want to try
setting log_autovacuum_min_duration=0 in the postgresql.conf, restarting
or signalling (pg_ctl reload) the server, and watching just what it's
doing. You might need to reduce how aggressively that runs, or limit
the higher target to only the tables that need it, to get this under
control. You're really pushing what you can do in a VM with this many
databases of this size.
