Look at the logs for the cassandra servers, are nodes going down ? 
Are there any other errors ? 
Check for log messages about GCInspector, if there is a lot of GC nodes will start to flap
up and down. 

It sounds like there is stability issue with cassandra, look there first to make sure it is
always available.

If you want to load 150GB of data from Hadoop to Cassandra a day I would suggest creating
SSTables in Hadoop and bulk loading them into cassandra. This article is old buy it’s still

Hope that helps.
