@nitin30_178226 the dropped messages mean that the node is overloaded and cannot keep up with range reads. You need to either throttle the traffic to the cluster or add more nodes to increase the capacity of the cluster.

The large partition warnings are being logged because you are writing partitions which are larger than the recommended 100MB. Depending on the use case and cluster access patterns, partitions which are a few hundred megabytes in size might be OK for your application but larger partitions will have a significant impact on the performance of your cluster. Cheers!
