All requests in Cassandra are subject to timeouts which default to small
numbers of seconds.

Secondary index queries are slower than non-secondary index queries. Low
cardinality is not a great case for them.

If you turn on tracing, it might inform your performance picture. My hunch
is that you are not seeing a bug, you are seeing the inevitable performance
characteristics of a very low cardinality Cassandra Secondary Index.
