I remembered that on the 1.2 branch, even though the auto_snapshot param
was set to false, truncating leads to snapshot creation that forced us to
manually remove the snapshot folder on disk

Both DROP and TRUNCATE auto_snapshot by default, yes.

Check JIRA, but in general currently DROP/CREATE same entity can cause
bugs. DROP/CREATE with always unique names should be fine.

So TRUNCATE all 10?

writes and reads. Can I?

CL=ANY is a problem with consistency. Wherever you read the instruction to
consider ever using it for any reason, strongly consider never visiting
that site again.

RF=2 means you can't use QUORUM without using CL.ALL. Not being able to use
QUORUM can result in consistency problems. Using CL.ALL results in
availability problems.
