Subject High CPU utilization by zookeeper
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2013 20:51:50 GMT
Hello Zookeeper community,

I've found that our application with high CPU usage.
I've done some profiling and found out that root cause of this issue is thread responsible
for connecting to zookeeper.
After some more investigation, i've found out that my application (one process) has few separate
sessions (clients ) that connect to zookeeper. I've refactored it and decrease number of sessions
to 1.

The CPU usage decreased. But still thread responsible for interaction with zoo-server is consuming
a lot of resources:
        7,044,378.96 [ms]
        984.896 ms / sec

The application is currently in "sleep mode" - it does nothing, but this thread is really
busy. Should it be such?
I've found out that this thread is currently works in infinity loop:
com.db.itrac.router.context.SendThread -> run method, especially  < clientCnxnSocket.doTransport(to,
pendingQueue, outgoingQueue);  >  consumes most of resources.

To connecting zookeeper I'm using netflix CuratorFramework with default configuration. Maybe
I'm doing smth wrong, please advice?

Also I have two questions:

1. Should such high CPU consumption thread exists in app? Is it proper behavior?
2. Can one application has few separate sessions to zookeeper server? Is it expected behavior
to increase of CPU utilization?
