Subject Re: Zookeeper server recovery behaviors
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 18:42:27 GMT
Great questions. I'd also like to add:

- What happens when there is a network partition, and one client
successfully deletes a znode for which other clients have setup watches?
Are the clients guaranteed to receive that node deleted watch event if the
client successfully thinks it deleted the znode from the other side?

Thanks,
Ryan
