> The default memtableThroughputInMB is calculated now based on the heap size.  Most people
running with a large heap in production explicitly set it for their memtable(s).  However,
the the CFs in the system keyspace still default to the calculated value which on a large
heap can be quite large.  HintsColumnFamily is really the only problematic one though as the
others are flushed afters changes to them.
> we should:
> 1) set the throughput on the hints CF to a reasonable max and min value - min(256, max(32,
> 2) set the throughput on the other system CFs to some small constant value (just as a
safety); 8M sounds good
