I pressume, that you run hyper-converged (CT/VM) on the machine. As you
mentioned there where issues with slow request due to some "sudden" high
resource demand, it could be that most of the memory contents, oft that
OSD, where swapped out.

Is KSM running on that node? If so, it could be also a reason for slow
requests or high CPU usage of that OSD, merge/unmerge operations could
interfere too.

If you have enough free memory available then try to stop and start the
OSD. This way you can check if the 100% swap + kworker reside with the
OSD or are cause by something else.
