Am I doing something wrong, or is this a fundamental limitation of CQL.
Neither. I believe you are running into https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6737, which is a bug, a performance bug, which we should and will fix. So thanks for the report. If you could give a shot to the patch on that issue and check if it helps, that would definitively be much appreciated.
There is absolutely no fundamental reason why a CQL operation would be more than 10 times slower than it's thrift equivalent, such dramatic difference is indicative of a bug, something obviously wrong.--Sylvain
