Abmar Barros updated ZOOKEEPER-702:
-----------------------------------

    Attachment: ZOOKEEPER-702.patch
                ZOOKEEPER-702-code.patch
                ZOOKEEPER-702-doc.patch

In this patch:
* Fixed a delay in client heartbeat sending, that was causing unit tests to run 
slowly.
* Added a new parameter to phi accrual FD - the minimum window size to begin 
timeout adaptation.
* Added a moderation step to Bertier FD, to comply with second level task 
described in his paper.
* Made Chen's alpha parameter configurable, and not a quarter of the timeout.
* Removed ^M characters from the patch lines.

I also have splitted the patch in two parts: one containing the failure 
detector module source code (ZOOKEEPER-702-code.patch) and another containing 
the documentation (ZOOKEEPER-702-doc.patch).

> Failure Detector Module
> Possible Mentor
> Henry Robinson (henry at apache dot org)
> Requirements
> Java, some distributed systems knowledge, comfort implementing distributed 
> systems protocols
> Description
> ZooKeeper servers detects the failure of other servers and clients by 
> counting the number of 'ticks' for which it doesn't get a heartbeat from 
> other machines. This is the 'timeout' method of failure detection and works 
> very well; however it is possible that it is too aggressive and not easily 
> tuned for some more unusual ZooKeeper installations (such as in a wide-area 
> network, or even in a mobile ad-hoc network).
> This project would abstract the notion of failure detection to a dedicated 
> Java module, and implement several failure detectors to compare and contrast 
> their appropriateness for ZooKeeper. For example, Apache Cassandra uses a 
> phi-accrual failure detector (http://ddsg.jaist.ac.jp/pub/HDY+04.pdf) which 
> is much more tunable and has some very interesting properties. This is a 
> great project if you are interested in distributed algorithms, or want to 
> help re-factor some of ZooKeeper's internal code.
