Ok, sounds like the problem is higher up the stack.

I see in later emails on this thread a log snippet that shows an issue with
the WAL writer pipeline, one of the datanodes is slow, sick, or partially
unreachable. If you have uneven point to point ping times among your
cluster instances, or periodic loss, it might still be AWS's fault,
otherwise I wonder why the DFSClient says a datanode is sick.
