Subject Re: Native C++ Drill client handshake recovery

Hi Parth,

At the bottom of the function DrillClientImpl::recvHandshake(), I have:

     if (m_pError != NULL) {
         return static_cast<connectionStatus_t>(m_pError->status);

     return CONN_SUCCESS;

My reading is that if WIN32_SHUTDOWN_ON_TIMEOUT is not defined, then m_pError is ignored and
the application doesn't know that the handshake failed.
It just goes on to start the heartbeat and returns success. There is no connection though.

I see that the Native Client sends the PING and receives a PONG back even if the the Hadoop
backend VM is paused.
There is no network activity. I merely assumed that the heartbeat is between my app and the
JAVA drill process which is alive and well.
Nevertheless, HDFS is never going to respond to Drill in this situation. My knowledge of that
side of things is quite a bit less though :(

My current approach is to use the async submitQuery() with a separate listener function and
add my own timer to wake up the app if it's taking too long.
However, there doesn't seem to be a reasonable way to shutdown the query when my timer fires.
I can call the cancel() function DrillClientQueryResult::cancel() but this merely sets a flag.
If no messages are being received from Drill, I can't see who is going to check the flag.

Do you have any suggestions for this?
