Vishal K commented on ZOOKEEPER-900:
Regarding your comment:
I was reasoning about the code. I had not tried to reproduce the problem when I
posted the question.
I tried a simple test and I am not able to reproduce the problem on Suse. I
closed the connection after writing the server ID but before the receiving
server issued a read. The receiver was able to read the ID and on the
following read it got a socket closed exception.
I am not sure if all TCP implementations would behave this way.

> 1. Blocking connects and accepts:
> a) The first problem is in manager.toSend(). This invokes connectOne(), which
> does a blocking connect. While testing, I changed the code so that
> connectOne() starts a new thread called AsyncConnct(). AsyncConnect.run()
> does a socketChannel.connect(). After starting AsyncConnect, connectOne
> starts a timer. connectOne continues with normal operations if the connection
> is established before the timer expires, otherwise, when the timer expires it
> interrupts AsyncConnect() thread and returns. In this way, I can have an
> upper bound on the amount of time we need to wait for connect to succeed. Of
> course, this was a quick fix for my testing. Ideally, we should use Selector
> to do non-blocking connects/accepts. I am planning to do that later once we
> at least have a quick fix for the problem and consensus from others for the
> real fix (this problem is big blocker for us). Note that it is OK to do
> blocking IO in SenderWorker and RecvWorker threads since they block IO to the
> respective !
> b) The blocking IO problem is not just restricted to connectOne(), but also
> in receiveConnection(). The Listener thread calls receiveConnection() for
> each incoming connection request. receiveConnection does blocking IO to get
> peer's info (s.read(msgBuffer)). Worse, it invokes connectOne() back to the
> peer that had sent the connection request. All of this is happening from the
> Listener. In short, if a peer fails after initiating a connection, the
> Listener thread won't be able to accept connections from other peers, because
> it would be stuck in read() or connetOne(). Also the code has an inherent
> cycle. initiateConnection() and receiveConnection() will have to be very
> carefully synchronized otherwise, we could run into deadlocks. This code is
> going to be difficult to maintain/modify.
