[PVE-User] Replication blocked issue

Dear PVE users,

I've a 3-nodes clusters, with ZFS storage.
Every node use it's own storage and the VMs/LXCs are replicated across 
other nodes every 10 minutes.

Some times happens that a replica job is running without an end.

For example at the moment I have a replication started yesterday:

2021-04-27 07:20:01 101-1: start replication job
2021-04-27 07:20:01 101-1: guest => CT 101, running => 1
2021-04-27 07:20:01 101-1: volumes => DS1:subvol-101-disk-1

zp1/subvol-101-disk-1 at __replicate_101-1_1619500801__

as you can see, no progress in this time slot, still 3.18M transferred.

There are 2 big problems with this:

1) the blocked replica prevents the other replication scheduled on the 
source node to run until this replication ends or fail

2) I've no other solution but reboot the destination node to exit this 
situation.

I tried to kill the process on the destination node, but the process is 
in D state and cannot be killed.
There is a way to get out this scenario without reboot nodes?

Thanks a lot and best regards,
