we saw that a while ago an before 2014 R2 SP1 HP1 (
It seams that there are some cases where the dva master process is not able to stop/kill a worker when the maximum time is exceeded. If you do a "ps -ef | grep gwdva" you might see some gwdva which have a parent process of "1". These you can kill.
We sometimes went as far as killing all gwdva and restarting via rcgrpwise.

Also check the log files of the poa if you see users with large number of items to be indexed (or the gwcheck logs). Might also lead to high load on the dva if one or more mailbox have to be reindexed.

for last day or so multiple gwdva processes on the server are eating quite a bit of CPU. Not sure if its playing catch up or what..and users are reporting searches are very slow.
