In our project we are using Cassandra 0.8.1, as I am using an object relational mapping framework Its my intention to specify properties in a properties file which the ORM can pass to Cassandra. Can someone please advise if there is anything else over and above the properties below which should be specified in order to get a stable configuration. I am learning on the job so to speak.

Thank you kindly for any comments or pointers.

# name=
