We recently upgrade the java driver from 3.x to 4.4 and wonder if the session establishment takes longer. When having single-node C* cluster and client on the same machine, the elapsed time for
is around 2-3 seconds. When we deploy multi-node cluster and client on GKE, the elapsed time may be longer although we don't see any warning logs printed by the driver. Based on our experience, we think the driver 4.4 takes longer than the driver 3.x.
Can you share your benchmarks to help us tell whether such time is reasonable or any suggestions on how we can troubleshoot or further optimize the connection time? Any feedback is appreciated!
