Subject Re: Counter values become under-counted when running repair.

What CL do you read and write with?

Normally, RF=2 is not recommended since it doesn't give you HA within a
data center - there is no way to achieve quorum in the data center if a
node goes down.

I suppose you can achieve a quorum if your request is spread across all
three data centers, but normally apps try to issue requests to a local data
center for performance. Having to ping all data centers on all requests to
achieve a quorum seems a bit excessive.

Can you advise us on your thinking when you selected RF=2?
