Subject [jira] Updated: (ZOOKEEPER-336) single bad client can cause server to stop accepting connections
Date Wed, 06 May 2009 21:37:30 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-336?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Henry Robinson updated ZOOKEEPER-336:
-------------------------------------

    Attachment: ZOOKEEPER-336.patch

Here is the new patch. Improvements are: tidied up formatting / added some comments to a public
constructor / added a new test which validates the connection limiting.

There is, of course, the question of whether this functionality belongs in ZooKeeper and not
an iptables rule or similar. I think it's helpful to have this in the ZK server to provide
an easy fix for misbehaving clients.

> One user saw a case where a single mis-programmed client was overloading the server with
connections - the client was creating a huge number of sessions to the server. This caused
all of the fds on the  server to become used.
> Seems like we should have some way of limiting (configurable override) the maximum number
of sessions from a single client (say 10 by default?) Also we should output warnings when
this limit is exceeded (or attempt to exceed).
