Subject [jira] Updated: (ZOOKEEPER-117) threading issues in Leader election
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2008 18:11:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-117?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Patrick Hunt updated ZOOKEEPER-117:

    Status: Open  (was: Patch Available)

There is a potential race condition with this code:

1) say leader shutdown is called
2) shutdown will call cnxAcceptor.halt()
3) acceptor is currently blocked on accept (for up to 1 sec)
4) shutdown method completes, including shutting down entire followers set (followerhandlers)
5) accept call in acceptor returns true (socket != null)
6) acceptor now adds followerhandler to followers set

> naked notifyall in lead() method - what is the condition variable? Best if set inside
the sync block
