> 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.
