Thanks for the info on 0.23. I suspect that the change in sync you
mentioned may well have something to do with this, since decreasing
the frequency of appends through the use of a moderate sized
writeBuffer at the client end pays huge dividends(as of course does
removing the appends altogether by disabling wal writes). High counts
of ungrouped(whether that be by group puts, delayed client flushing or
delayed WAL flushing) writes seem to suffer pretty badly under 0.23.
We'll be moving back to 0.20.2 as it seems to be much better tested
and stressed, likely to the cdh distro(3u3).

Thanks... It's nice to have a frame of reference to compare against.

I'm not sure. As has been said, likely unrelated, going to try and
figure it out.
