Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-2342) Consider adding a watchdog node next to region server

Consider adding a watchdog node next to region server

                 Key: HBASE-2342
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2342
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: regionserver
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon

This idea has been bandied about a fair amount. The concept is to add a second java process
that runs next to each region server to act as a watchdog. Several possible purposes:
- monitor the RS for liveness - if it exhibits Juliet syndrome ("appears dead") then we kill
it agressively to prevent it from coming back to life
- restart RS automatically in failure cases
- potentially move the entire ZK session to the watchdog to decouple node liveness from the
particular JVM liveness

Let's discuss in this JIRA.
