I hate to break this to you, but the Definite Guide probably has the
best information (including diagrams) out there (that I know of).
Because of all the possible permutations of multi-datacenter setups it
is going to be difficult to find some doc/presentation that describes
EXACTLY what you want to do and how it will work. Here are some hints:
You can setup a simulation cluster. Give each host ips such as since you do not have to explicitly configure
those on a single host. Set the XMX low for each instance. Run in
foreground and/or set your logging to verbose so you can debug which
nodes data land on.
