The issue is not going to be callbacks on a volume since callbacks are
not issued on a per volume basis for read/write volumes and I assume
that these jobs are not issuing volume releases which would trigger
callback breaks on readonly volumes.
The more likely scenario are:
=2E file lock requests/releases on a specific file
=2E data stores to a particular file
=2E directory content changes (create, rename, link, unlink) in a single
