Certainly I'm using multiple cloud servers for the multiple client tests.  Whether or not they
are resident on the same physical machine, I just don't know.

Yes - in all tests I add all nodes in the cluster to the --nodes list.  The client requests
are in fact being dispersed among all the nodes as evidenced by the intermittent TimedOutExceptions
in the log which show up against the various nodes in the input list.  Could it be a result
of all the virtual nodes being hosted on the same physical hardware?  Am I running into some
connection limit?  I don't see anything pegged in the JMX stats.

It's unclear if you're using multiple client machines for or not, a limitation of
24k/21k for a single quad-proc machine is normal in my experience.
