I 'm running few tests on multichain mainly to asses the performance. Whenever I put load on the node, the CPU gets spiked and so does my disk writes. What I 'm failing to understand is when I stop the load, the CPU usage goes back to normal (1-2%) my diskusage (write) remains very high, even after 30-40 mins after the load was stopped. So wanted to understand what is the writes being used for.
My size in mempool is one which should mean the blocks are confirmed.

This is atop command. Similar WriteOp/sec I can see from AWS cloudwatch on my volume.
