Tried that, it seems to have reduced the loads a little after everything 
warmed-up, but not much.

A java client on a separate box using the datastax java driver, 48 
threads writing 100 records each iteration as prepared batch statements.

At 5000 records/sec, the servers just can't keep up, so the client backs 
up.  That's only 5M of data/sec, which doesn't seem like much.  As I 
mentioned, switching to SSDs didn't help much, so I'm assuming at this 
point that the server overloads are what's holding up the client.
