What Replica Placement Strategy are you using (Rackunaware, Rackaware, 
etc?)? The current implementation of Rackaware is pretty simple and 
relies on careful placement of nodes in multiple DCs along the ring to 
avoid hotspots.
RackAwareStrategy: replica 2 is placed in the first node along the ring 
the belongs in another data center than the first; the remaining N-2 
replicas, if any, are placed on the first nodes along the ring in the 
same rack as the first

Note that with RackAwareStrategy, succeeding nodes along the ring should 
alternate data centers to avoid hot spots. For instance, if you have 
nodes A, B, C, and D in increasing Token order, and instead of 
alternating you place A and B in DC1, and C and D in DC2, then nodes C 
and A will have disproportionately more data on them because they will 
be the replica destination for every Token range in the other data center.
