Closing in favor of CASSANDRA-7658

>                 Key: CASSANDRA-7567
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7567
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>         Environment: debian 7.5, bare metal, 14 nodes, 64CPUs, 64GB RAM, 
> commit_log disk sata, data disk SSD, vnodes, leveled compaction strategy
>            Reporter: David O'Dell

> We've run into a situation where a single node out of 14 is experiencing high 
> disk io. This can happen when a node is being decommissioned or after it 
> joins the ring and runs into the bug cassandra-6621.
> When this occurs the write latency for the entire cluster spikes.
> From 0.3ms to 170ms.
> To simulate this simply run dd on the commit_log disk (dd if=/dev/zero 
> of=/tmp/foo bs=1024) and you will see that instantly all nodes in the cluster 
> have slowed down.
> BTW overwhelming the data disk does not have this same effect.
> Also I've tried this where the overwhelmed node isn't being connected 
> directly from the client and it still has the same effect.
