There is always num_tokens tokens in the ring.

I got this wrong. 
Each node *does* have num_tokens tokens. 

 With N nodes, the ring is divided into N*num_tokens. Correct? 
Yes

In other words it is cluster wide parameter. Correct?
Yes.

Each node has (num_tokens / N) * RF ranges on it. 

That means every node should have the same num_token parameter? In other words it is cluster wide parameter. Correct?
