Most of the time, when your node "fails", it is because Java Garbage
Collection is failing. This is usually because you are writing faster than
you can flush to disk and also collect the garbage. Usually people inspect
the GC logs and/or use something like jconsole to inspect the JMX interface
of the JVM and the Cassandra metrics exposed there.
