Subject Re: Inconsistent data issues when running nodetool move.

Thanks Maki,

That makes sense with my symptoms...  I was doing a CL=ONE for write and a CL=ALL for read,
expecting that to be sufficient.  

I will try both set to ALL and see if I get better consistency.

through with those commit logs, I no longer get consistency issues.
