Subject [jira] Commented: (ZOOKEEPER-30) Hooks for atomic broadcast protocol
Date Sat, 06 Dec 2008 00:15:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-30?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12653999#action_12653999

Andrew Carman commented on ZOOKEEPER-30:

Harvey Mudd Clinic Team writes:

1) Is the assignment of zxid by Zab asynchronous? Otherwise, when calling propose we are going
to have to wait for the proposal to be routed to the Zab leader, have it assign a zxid, return
to the follower Zab, then return to the client, which seems like it could take a while if
the connection is slow, or the leader gets bogged down.

2) What's the status of the proposal when propose returns? Just that the Zab leader has seen
it or do we know it's been delivered?

3) The existing API doesn't appear to have any way to detect when another server comes online
or goes offline. This seems like functionality that'd be useful in implementing ephemeral
nodes. One possible solution might be to generalize the status() callback to indicate status
changes to any node, not just the current node and leader.

4) Do the getState() and setState() callbacks really belong in the Zab API, or do they actually
belong in the (so far theoretical) logging module? Whose state, exactly, is being transferred
and stored?
