What version are you using?  and what consistency level are you using for your inserts?  A
CL.ONE for instance can end up with a large backup in the replicateOnWrite (or CounterMutation
depending on version) stage since it happens outside the feedback loop from the request and
can be a little slow.  if it shows large pending/blocked in "nodetool tpstats" might be overrunning
your capacity.
