Subject Re: zk connection leak with TableInput/OutputFormat (CDH3b4, 0.90.1)
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2011 21:24:59 GMT
yes i am passing destroyProxy=true. But according to the code, it
doesn't affect closing zookeeper connection (it should be closed
anyway) but i  have +1 zk connection each time i run the MR job still.
