Avoid Cassandra forwarding request to other nodes:
- Use consistency level ONE;
- Create data model to do single request with single key, since different keys may belong
to different nodes and requires forwarding requests to them;
- Use smart client to calculate token for key and select appropriate node (primary or replica)
by token range;
- Turn off Dynamic Snitch (it may forward request to other replica even it has the data);
- Have all or hot data in page cache (no HDD disk IO) or use SSD;
- If you do regular updates to key, do not use row cache, otherwise you may try.
