Thanks, Aaron.  I am looking at the thread pool queues; not enough
data on that yet but so far I've seen queues in the ReadStage from
4-30 (once 100) and MemtablePostFlusher as much as 70, though not consistently.

The read latencies on the CFs on this cluster are sitting around
20-40ms, and the write latencies are are all around .01ms.  That seems
good to me, but I don't have a baseline.

I do see high (90-100%) utilization from time to time on the disk that
holds the data, based on reads.  This doesn't surprise me too much
because IO on these machines is fairly limited in performance.

Does this sound like the node is overloaded?
