Subject Huge multi-data center latencies
Date Sat, 19 Oct 2013 21:18:53 GMT
I am experiencing huge latencies with a multi-data center Cassandra
cluster. With consistency level ONE, I expected almost the same latency
with the single data center setup. What could possibly affect the latency
in multi-data center setup?

multi-DC setup
min max avg (ms)
1 969 164.554264

single-DC setup
min max avg (ms)
1 51 2.371786

I am using the Datastax Java client library (
