last_autoanalyze is set after autoanalyze is done, so that would suggest
that autoanalyze is not the problem.
It can be tough to figure out where the activity is coming from unless
cou can catch it in the act. You could log all statements (though the amount
of log may be prohibitive and can cripple performance), you could log
just long running statements in the hope that these are at fault, you
could log connections and disconnections and hope to find the problem
that way. Maybe logging your applications can help too.
