Subject Re: replication impact on write throughput

If you have for example, your replication factor equal to the total amount
of nodes in the ring, I suspect you will hit a brick wall pretty soon.

The biggest impact on your write performance will most likely be the
consistency level of your writes. In other words, how many nodes you want to
wait for before you acknowledge the write back to the client.
