Sorry didn't see this one. I think this is happening because of 'diff' 
based self-heal which does full file checksums, that I believe is the 
root cause. Could you execute 'gluster volume set <volname> 
cluster.data-self-heal-algorithm full' to prevent this issue in future. 
But this option will be effective for the new self-heals that will be 
triggered after the execution of the command. The ongoing ones will 
still use the old mode of self-heal.
