Subject Re: Leader Latch recovery after suspended state
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2014 14:38:45 GMT

Just want to see if there is any progress on this?

I also have a related question about not only re-use the znode, but imho,
It would be great that LeaderLatch can survive from teomprary
ConnectionLossException (i.e., due to transient network issue).

I guess in most cases, the context switch due to leader re-election is
quite expensive, we might not want to do that just because of some
transient issue. if the current leader can re-connect within the session
timeout, it should still hold the leadership and no leader change would
happen during between. The similar rational like the differences between
ConnestionLossException (which is recoverable) and SessionExipredException
(which is not recoverable).

what are your thoughts on this? Thanks a lot!
