Subject Re: Cassandra benchmarking on Rackspace Cloud

Sorry, mixed signals in my response. I was partially replying to suggestions that we were limited
by the box's NIC or DC's bandwidth (which is gigabit, no dice there). I also ran the tests
with -t50 on multiple tester machines in the cloud with no change in performance; I've now
rerun those tests on dedicated hardware.

	reads/sec @
nodes	one client	two clients
1	53k		73k
2	37k		50k
4	37k		50k

- All notes from the previous dataset apply here.
- All clients were reading with 50 processes.
- Test clients were not co-located with the databases or each other.
- All machines are in the same DC.
- Servers showed about 20MB/sec in network i/o for the multi-node clusters, which is well
under the max for gigabit.
- Latency was about 2.5ms/req.

At this point, we'd really appreciate it if anyone else could attempt to replicate our results.
Ultimately, our goal is to see an increase in throughput given an increase in cluster size.
