Subject [jira] [Created] (CURATOR-220) LOST state is sometimes not reported to ConnectionStateListener
Date Fri, 15 May 2015 20:12:00 GMT
Akos Gyimesi created CURATOR-220:

             Summary: LOST state is sometimes not reported to ConnectionStateListener
                 Key: CURATOR-220
             Project: Apache Curator
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: 2.8.0, 2.4.2
            Reporter: Akos Gyimesi

I used iptables to drop all outgoing packets to ZooKeeper, and logged the connection state
changes. Most of the time I got only SUSPENDED and RECONNECTED states, even though the ZooKeeper
session expired and the ephemeral nodes of the session disappeared.

According to CURATOR-185 this may not be a bug because Curator connection states are not in
1-to-1 relation with ZooKeeper connection events. However, it causes problems in the LeaderSelector
recipe (and possibly in others): without the LOST event the leader will never know if it really
lose leadership or not. If it does not resign leadership at the SUSPENDED event (which is
recommended, but not required according to the docs) the session will be in leader state forever.

See the following gist:
The code tests the LeaderSelector recipe, but the behavior is the same with a simple ConnectionStateListener.

Tested with Curator 2.4.2 and 2.8.0, it probably affects several other versions as well.
