Subject [jira] [Commented] (ZOOKEEPER-1197) Incorrect socket handling of 4 letter words for NIO
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2011 20:08:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-1197?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13119557#comment-13119557

Camille Fournier commented on ZOOKEEPER-1197:

One more update for this. After talking to some folks here that are more networking experts
than I am, it appears that the only way to truly fix this bug is to allow the client to initiate
the close of the socket, not the server. Because a socket close event (especially in recent
Linux kernels) may cause the kernel to give up on sending data even when the server has not
finished/received acks, the only way to guarantee that a client has actually received all
the data is to wait for the client to close the connection. We can add a timeout in the server
to clean up 4lw clients that have not closed their connection, but we cannot rely on all of
the data getting to the client without an explicit client close.

>             Project: ZooKeeper
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: server
>    Affects Versions: 3.3.3, 3.4.0
>            Reporter: Camille Fournier
>            Assignee: Camille Fournier
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: 3.3.4, 3.4.0, 3.5.0
>         Attachments: ZOOKEEPER-1197.patch
> When transferring a large amount of information from a 4 letter word, especially in interactive
mode (telnet or nc) over a slower network link, the connection can be closed before all of
the data has reached the client. This is due to the way we handle nc non-interactive mode,
by cancelling the selector key. 
> Instead of cancelling the selector key for 4-letter-words, we should instead flag the
NIOServerCnxn to ignore detection of a close condition on that socket (CancelledKeyException,
EndOfStreamException). Since the 4lw will close the connection immediately upon completion,
this should be safe to do.
