Subject Re: Question about bootstrapping

AFAIK it uses the value returned via nodetool ring or info, which is also the load reported
against the StorageService in JMX. This  is the sum of the live disk space used for each CF.

The best approach though is to manually assign the tokens to your nodes, and bring the nodes
up with auto bootstrap off.

The Operations page on the wiki has information on the Bootstrap process, Token Selection
and Load Balancing
