Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-895) Servers refuse to replicate
Date Wed, 23 May 2007 16:45:16 GMT


Martin Alderson commented on DIRSERVER-895:

Hi Alex,

I would be interested in knowing what critical flaws the current system has aside from the
ones listed in this tracker.  I think I have found another couple of issues myself but I need
to make sure they were not my doing before I report them.

I am attempting to use the replication module (I've branched it for now so I can mold it into
something I can use) in a specific project I am working on.  I'm not entirely sure why it
would need to be completely rewritten - the basic architecture seems reasonable to me.  Obviously
it is not production ready yet but isn't it just a case of rigorously testing it and fixing
the problesm as and when they occur?

I can continue this discussion elsewhere (the dev mailing list?) if you want by the way.

> It is possible for a server to get itself in a state where it will never accept replication
logs from other servers until it is restarted.
> I encountered this while debugging but I believe it must be possible to get in this state
during normal execution.
> It seems that there is a case where a server starts a replication transaction (sets ReplicationServerContextHandler#replicaInTransaction)
but fails to notice that it has ended (perhaps due to a message timeout?)
