It doesn't sound right that the primary DC is DC2 but DC1 is under load.
You might not be aware of it but the symptom suggests DC1 is getting hit
with lots of traffic. If you run netstat (or whatever utility/tool of your
choice), you should see established connections to the cluster. That should
give you clues as to where it's coming from.

That's another smoking gun that the nodes are buried in GC. A 9.5-second
pause is significant. The slow hinted handoffs is really the least of your
problem right now. If nodes weren't going down, there wouldn't be hints to
handoff in the first place. Cheers!
