This is expected if you are inserting data in random order.  If you try
another benchmark where you insert data in primary key sorted order, you'll
see that the performance will be much higher, and more consistent.  If you
have a heavy insert workload, this kind of optimization is critical.  The
table's partitioning and primary key can often be designed to make this
happen naturally, but it's a dataset dependent thing, so without more
specifics about your data it's difficult to give more precise advice.

That's incorrect.  The master node does not hold any table data.  If you
set the number of replicas to be 1, you will lose data if you lose the
tablet server which holds the replica.  We always recommend production
workloads set number of replicas to 3 in order to have fault tolerance.

The Apache Kudu project does not provide binary artifacts for releases,
however vendors can and do.  For instance you can find Cloudera's RPMs
corresponding to Kudu 1.6 here
