Subject ZK-1029: C client crashes on DNS resolution failure
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2015 21:42:17 GMT
Hello fellow ZooKeepers,

We have now had three separate production incidents where one of the root causes was flaky
DNS causes the ZooKeeper C client library to completely crash.

This has been a known bug since at least 2011, https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-1029

I'm having trouble defending to my colleagues how ZooKeeper, which is so integral to building
reliable software, can have such a serious issue go unanswered for 4 years.  What needs to
be done to get this issue some developer love?
