Subject [GitHub] zookeeper issue #136: [ZOOKEEPER-1416] Persistent Recursive Watch
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:25:18 GMT
Github user skamille commented on the issue:

    https://github.com/apache/zookeeper/pull/136
  
    Questions I have about this from a high level design perspective:
    1. As I asked on the mailing list, have we done load/performance testing or addressed
what that might look like in the design? (Jordan to get back to us on that)
    2. I'm not sure I understand why persistent watches are both persistent and always set
for all children of a node. Is it not useful to imagine that I would want a persistent watch
on some node but not care about its children? Some clarification on that choice would be helpful.
    3. What does it really mean to guarantee sending of all watch events? What are the implications
for a disconnected client upon reconnect? How much do we expect ZK to potentially be storing
in order to be able to fulfill this guarantee? Will this potentially cause unbounded memory
overhead or lead to full GC? Can we realistically bound this guarantee in order to provide
the other operational guarantees people expect from ZK such as generally predictable memory
usage based on size of data tree?
