By any chance do you have any script which triggers gluster commands
like volume status in some time intervals? The above log indicates that
a lock on volume rsvol1 (by some gluster command) has been acquired by
node 2e3e526a-1e9a-4f6d-abee-c42d84f3bb16 which is the UUID of the
server and the same can be found from gluster peer status command. If
you don't get any clue from this information mind sharing the glusterd
log files?
