ZooKeeper’s raison d’etre is distributed coordination. Have a look at Apache Curator (http://curator.apache.org)
for usage examples.

Subject:  Zookeeper a good fit?  

Currently we have a cluster of machines running a single application. The  
cluster performs various background tasks and we have a hacky, home-grown  
solution for the nodes in the cluster to coordinate with each other to  
perform these background tasks. It's very error-prone and we're looking to  
replace it. Would Zookeeper be a good fit for coordinating something like  
this? If so, are there any lightweight examples out there we could look at  

Thanks very much!
