Subject [jira] [Created] (ZOOKEEPER-3361) Add multi version of getChildren request
Date Fri, 12 Apr 2019 12:41:00 GMT
Peter Szecsi created ZOOKEEPER-3361:

             Summary: Add multi version of getChildren request
                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-3361
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-3361
             Project: ZooKeeper
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: java client, server, tests
            Reporter: Peter Szecsi
            Assignee: Peter Szecsi

There is already a multi operation for \{{delete, create, setData}}... However, \{{getChildren}}
has no version of getting the children of multiple nodes by one message.
This could heavily improve the efficiency of a traversal (e.g. breadth-first search) when
the latency is high (>1ms). In this case, a simple \{{deleteAll}} algorithm on 10k nodes
takes at least (1ms * 10000 * 2 =) 20 sec, only to acquire the list of the nodes selected
for deleting (it has to check for every node whether it has children or not).
I would add a version of \{{getChildren}} function to the ZooKeeper API which accepts lists
as well (containing node paths) and returns their children and introduce a new request type.
This way the backward compabilty would not be hurt but ZK could provide a more robust solution
for those who may have latency issues.
