As the error suggests, a mutation (write request) is too big and larger than the maximum size of 16MB (max_mutation_size_in_kb).

This indicates that your app is performing very large inserts or updates and you need to review your code to figure out why it's doing that.

As I mentioned before, if you require assistance with DSE then please log a ticket with DataStax Support so one of our engineers can assist you directly. Cheers!
