replicas are you writing?

So you're actually spot on the predicted numbers: you're pushing
20k*3=60k "raw" rows/s across your 4 machines.

You might get another 10% or so from increasing memtable thresholds,
but bottom line is you're right around what we'd expect to see.
Furthermore, CPU is the primary bottleneck which is what you want to
see on a pure write workload.
