Network topology with the topology file filled out is already the configuration we are using.

Use placement_strategy = 'org.apache.cassandra.locator.NetworkTopologyStrategy' and also fill
the file. This will tell cassandra that you have two DCs. You can verify
that by looking at output of the ring command.

If you DCs are setup properly, only one request will go over WAN. Though the responses from
all nodes in other DC will go over WAN.

We have a 5 node cluster, with a matching 5 nodes for DR in another data center.   With a
replication factor of 3, does the node I send a write too attempt to send it to the 3 servers
in the DR also?  Or does it send it to 1 and let it replicate locally in the DR environment
to save bandwidth across the WAN?
Normally this isn't an issue for us, but at times we are writing approximately 1MB a sec of
data, and seeing a corresponding 3MB of traffic across the WAN to all the Cassandra DR servers.

If my assumptions are right, is this configurable somehow for writing to one node and letting
it do local replication?  We are on 1.1.5
