Subject [jira] [Commented] (S4-7) Netty to tolerate network glitches and connection loss
Date Wed, 09 Jan 2013 11:56:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/S4-7?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13548426#comment-13548426

Matthieu Morel commented on S4-7:
---------------------------------

Not sure this should be handled in the communication layer. Ensuring messages are not lost
requires some form of acknowledgement, which might be better implemented at a higher level,
where more information on the structure of the application is available.

> NettyEmitter connects to different partitions and creates channels over which it communicates
to other listeners.
> It suffers from the following issues -- 
> 1. If the underlying topology changes, the channels and the associated connections are
not updated.
> 2. If a connection gets disconnected, it stays disconnected.
> 3. If for any reason, a connection can't be made, send() drops the message to be sent.
> The solution is to - 
> 1. Maintain a bounded messageQueue for each destination partition - if a connection does
not exist, the message should be queued.
> 2. Maintain a map of the channel used for each destination partition - update this map
on changes to topology, or on send() in case of disconnections.
> 3. Every time a (re-)connection is made, send the queued messages first.
