So in total you have 56 replicas, correct? This shouldn't be a
problem, we've seen many more replicas than that. Many many many.

Do you ever see any replicas go into recovery? One common problem is
that GC exceeds the timeouts for, say, Zookeeper to contact nodes and
they'll cycle through recovery. Have you captured the GC logs and seen
if you have large stop-the-world GC pauses?

In short, what you've described should be easily handled. My guess is
GC pauses, I/O contention and/or flaky networks....
