hanm opened a new pull request #1069: ZOOKEEPER-3056: Fails to load database with missing snapshot
file but with valid transaction log file.
URL: https://github.com/apache/zookeeper/pull/1069
 
 
   ZOOKEEPER-2325 introduced a check on snapshot and transaction log files during recovery,
which will treat empty or missing snapshot files with the presence of transaction log files
illegal state, and abort start up process. 
   
   For old versions of ZooKeeper, it's possible to have valid transaction log files but no
snapshot. For example, if snap count set too low, or server crashes before the first snapshot
was taken. For new versions of ZooKeeper with ZOOKEEPER-2325, this is not a problem as ZooKeeper
will make sure the presence of at least one snapshot file (e.g. on a fresh start with empty
local data, ZooKeeper will create one snapshot file as part of the start up.).
   
   So we need provide a smooth upgrade path for users with old version of ZooKeeper. This
patch introduces a system property flag, once set, will skip the empty snapshot validation
during start up. The flag will reset itself once start up is finished, to allow the feature
introduced in ZOOKEEPER-2325 continuing work without restart the ZooKeeper process. The default
value of this flag is false, as we don't want to disable the features introduced in ZOOKEEPER-2325.
We also want the flag to be explicitly set by admin, as ZooKeeper itself is not able to tell
when to trust missing snapshot or not.
