How does the load rate compare between sstableloader and DS Bulk Loader?

This question is from the China community's WeChat group: Do we have any data comparing the load rates of sstableloader and ds bulk loader? Thanks!

There really is no comparison between the sstableloader utility and the DataStax Bulk Loader (DSBulk) since there is no overlap in the functionality they provide.

The sstableloader utility can only bulk load SSTables into a Cassandra cluster. On the other hand, DSBulk can load data in CSV or JSON format.

This means that you have to use one or the other depending on the format of the source data so the load rate between the two tools are not comparable. Cheers!
