Subject Re: Potential Bug in Master-Slave with Replicated LevelDB Store
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 18:38:52 GMT
Take a look at whether the JVM is doing a full garbage collect at the time
when the failover occurs.  Our team has observed clients to failover to an
alternate broker at a time that corresponded to a full GC, and it might be
that the same thing is happening here (but the failover isn't happening
gracefully).  If that's what's going on, you should be able to work around
the problem by tuning your JVM heap and/or your GC strategy, though it
still sounds like there's a bug related to the failover that should be
tracked down and fixed as well.
