Look at /proc/cluster/lock_dlm/drop_count

It's 50000 by default and increasing it could possibly improve things,
or disable it altogether by setting to zero.
e.g.  echo "0" >> /proc/cluster/lock_dlm/drop_count

You need to change this prior to mounting gfs on each node.  When
non-zero, GFS/lock_dlm tries to keep the number of locks held locally
below this level which limits the caching gfs can do.  When zero, no
limiting is attempted.
