Subject [jira] [Created] (CURATOR-7) Session ids not preserved if EnsembleProvider has changed the ensemble
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 23:43:15 GMT
Shevek created CURATOR-7:

             Summary: Session ids not preserved if EnsembleProvider has changed the ensemble
                 Key: CURATOR-7
             Project: Apache Curator
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Shevek
            Assignee: Jordan Zimmerman


InterProcessMutex, LeaderLatch, etc use an ephemeral node. If ZooKeeper gives a Disconnected
event, the native client reconnects with the same session id, and the ephemeral node is preserved.
If the ensemble changes at any point before a Disconnect, Curator's ConnectionState#checkState()
calls handleNewConnectionString(), which constructs a new native ZK client, discarding the
previous session id, and losing all locks.

This can be expensive.

Can ConnectionState be made to preserve the session id, or be more conservative about discarding
the entire native client on a Disconnected event?


An ensemble change (e.g. adding a new node to a cluster) does not mean that all session ids
are now invalid. The next network glitch should not break locks.

There is no assumption in this description that the reconfiguration and the glitch/disconnection
were related - they need not be.
