Hi All,


While benchmarking Cassandra I found “Mutation Dropped” messages in the logs.  Now I know this is a good old question. It will be really great if someone can provide a check list to recover when such a thing happens. I am looking for answers of the following questions  -


1.       Which parameters to tune in the config files? – Especially looking for heavy writes

2.       What is the difference between TimedOutException and silently dropping mutation messages while operating on a CL of QUORUM.
