Predicate move keeps repeating, but not completing, every 5 minutes forcing ingest to be stopped

An Alpha is logging that it is moving a predicate, however it attempts to move the same predicate every 5 minutes. While this is going on, ingest has crawled to nearly a complete stop, except for a few records that can slip in.

Any idea what might be going on or where to lock for more information?

We resolved this by calling the /moveTablet?tablet=name&group=2 API on the predicated that was failing to finish the move. We had to move it 2 times. Once back to the original Group, but the error simply moved, then back to the group Dgraph initially wanted it to move to. After moving it twice, the error no longer presented itself and ingestion worked again.
