Subject Re: How to tune Cassandra or Java Driver to get lower latency when there are a lot of writes?
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 22:37:46 GMT
I use Spark and spark-cassandra-connector with a customized Cassandra
writer (spark-cassandra-connector doesn’t support DELETE). Basically the
writer works as follows:

   - Bind a row in Spark RDD with either INSERT/Delete PreparedStatement
   - Create a BatchStatement for multiple rows
   - Write to Cassandra.

I knew using CQLBulkOutputFormat would be better, but it doesn't supports
