I understand how a cluster works, and how a hook works, but if you have a hook on a certain bucket and commit to a node on that bucket, is the hook triggered only on that node, on all the nodes, or only on the nodes that will actually host that key?
The hook is only triggered on one node, the write coordinator. 

This is not always the exact same node that you sent the request to. 

Because you can't predict which node the coordinator will be on, the code must be loaded on every single node, as Eric pointed out.
