Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-1120) Controller could miss a broker state change
Date Thu, 18 Jan 2018 19:57:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1120?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16331093#comment-16331093

Jeff Widman commented on KAFKA-1120:
------------------------------------

The issue description says "the broker will be in this weird state until it is restarted."

Couldn't this also be fixed by simply forcing a controller re-election? Since it will re-identiy
the leaders?

> When the controller is in the middle of processing a task (e.g., preferred leader election,
broker change), it holds a controller lock. During this time, a broker could have de-registered
and re-registered itself in ZK. After the controller finishes processing the current task,
it will start processing the logic in the broker change listener. However, it will see no
broker change and therefore won't do anything to the restarted broker. This broker will be
in a weird state since the controller doesn't inform it to become the leader of any partition.
Yet, the cached metadata in other brokers could still list that broker as the leader for some
partitions. Client requests routed to that broker will then get a TopicOrPartitionNotExistException.
This broker will continue to be in this bad state until it's restarted again.
