Camille Fournier commented on ZOOKEEPER-702:
--------------------------------------------

Looking at this in my own rep, created https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-3660 to
try to get some help for why this won't work in the ZK reviewboard.

> Description
> ZooKeeper servers detects the failure of other servers and clients by counting the number
of 'ticks' for which it doesn't get a heartbeat from other machines. This is the 'timeout'
method of failure detection and works very well; however it is possible that it is too aggressive
and not easily tuned for some more unusual ZooKeeper installations (such as in a wide-area
network, or even in a mobile ad-hoc network).
> This project would abstract the notion of failure detection to a dedicated Java module,
and implement several failure detectors to compare and contrast their appropriateness for
ZooKeeper. For example, Apache Cassandra uses a phi-accrual failure detector (http://ddsg.jaist.ac.jp/pub/HDY+04.pdf)
which is much more tunable and has some very interesting properties. This is a great project
if you are interested in distributed algorithms, or want to help re-factor some of ZooKeeper's
internal code.
