Subject Re: Recovery issue - how to debug?
Date Mon, 19 Apr 2010 18:55:30 GMT
To double-check, is the best way to tell a ZK instance is up-to-date
by looking at its ``LastZxid`` value? For example:

$ java -jar /home/travis/cmdline-jmxclient-0.10.5.jar - localhost:8081
04/19/2010 18:42:45 +0000 org.archive.jmx.Client LastZxid: 0xf000420ad

I believe the ``LastZxid`` for each ZK instance needs to be compared
to the leader to see how far behind it is.

It would be a lot easier from the operations perspective if the leader
explicitly published some health stats:

(a) Count of instances in the ensemble.
(b) Count of up-to-date instances in the ensemble.

This would greatly simplify monitoring & alerting - when an instance
falls behind one could configure their monitoring system to let
someone know and take a look at the logs.
