Subject Question about handling SUSPEND state from ConnectionStateListener
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 10:16:23 GMT
Hi All,

I want to ask a question about handling SUSPEND state.

Here is the background:

I am using curator/zk to as a task coordinator for a list of concurrent
running jobs.
For every minute, every worker (each work run on a separate VM) try to
acquire a task (lock) from zk by calling:

    lock = new InterProcessSemaphoreMutex(zkClient, task);
    boolean hasLock = false;
    hasLock = lock.acquire(1, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

If the work get the lock, it will do the task.

The class which is responsible for retriever lock/task implement
ConnectionStateListener interface. And below is the currently

RECONNECT: do nothing, since worker will try to acquire lock regardless the
ZK connection status.
LOST: release the lock, since the connect is lost.
SUSPEND: ??????

My question is about SUSPEND state, should I release the lock when enter
SUSPEND (basically, treat as lost) or do something else?

What is the best practice to handle SUSPEND state?
