Also the hot count of the pool-name=w-vol-io-cache:rbthash_entry_t is 10053, implies io-cache xlator could be the cause of the leak.

As a temperory solution, could you disable io-cache and/or quick-read and see if the leak still persists?

$gluster volume set io-cache off
$gluster volume set quick-read off

This may reduce the performance to certain extent.

For further debugging, could you provide the core dump or steps to reproduce if avaiable?
