> When an issue like ACCUMULO-954 comes along and causes a tablet to be hosted on multiple
tablet servers, its nice to have sanity checks that limit the damage this can cause.
> Accumulo already has a sanity check on writes to the metadata table that ensures the
tablet server making the write still holds a lock.  This has reliably triggered in cases of
multiple assignment bugs.  It would be nice to have more checks like this.  Below are some
places I think checks would be useful, are there more?
>  * Tserver attempts to positively check it holds its lock before getting a new walog.
>  * Clients take some action to clear lockless tservers from their metadata table cache.
 This would help prevent writing data to a zombie tserver that may lose data, or reading stale
data from a zombie tserver.
