2 minutes seems incredibly long to me. Such a setting is saying that you
allow the server to fall 2 minutes behind the quorum. Rather than
investigate increasing the limits I'd recommend you figure out why you're
having such terrible latencies btw dcs (I assume that's the issue, could be
something else, e.g. GC pauses, etc......)

Typically determined by the max latency you can allow btw changes in your
cluster and when the clients find out about them. IIRC Camille had done
quite a bit of work with ZK and multi-DC. Perhaps she, or others with this
situation, can provide "real world" insight.
