Writes are higher on one particular volume? Or did one brick witness more
writes than its two replicas within the same volume? Could you share the
volume info output of the affected volume plus the name of the affected
brick if at all the issue is with one single brick?

Also, did you check if the volume was undergoing any heals (`gluster volume
heal <VOLNAME> info`)?
