How many clients are you using to write?
Also the BatchWriter parameters might have an effect too - typically people use values like the following:
BatchWriter writer = connector.createBatchWriter(tableName, 1000000, 1000, 10)
Those numbers are
1000000 : max bytes per batch
1000 : max latency in milliseconds
10 : threads to use
What's the max ingest rate of a single server?

We have 15 nodes running a simple Java program that reads and writes to Accumulo and then indexes some data into Solr. The rate of ingest is not scaling linearly with the number of nodes that we start up. I have tried increasing several parameters including:
