Austin,

Could you try using the new leader election algorithm? You need to set
the algorithm type to 3 and you also need to set the election port (TCP)
to be used.

See http://zookeeper.wiki.sourceforge.net/ZooKeeperConfiguration for
more details.

Subject: Leader election stalled

Hi,

We have run into a situation where killing the leader results in
followers
perpetually trying to reelect that leader.

We have 11 zookeeper (2.2.1 from SF.net) servers and 256 clients
connecting
at random. We kill the leader and observe the impact, monitoring a
script
that repeatedly prints the responses to "ruok" and "stat". All servers
except the killed leader respond with "imok" and "ZooKeeperServer not
running", respectively.

About half of the time, each remaining server gets into a loop of
failing to
connect to the killed leader and then reelecting the killed leader.

Here is an example log, which is representative of similar logs on the
other
servers. We additionally logged connectivity during leader election. If
anyone would like complete logs, let me know.

Thanks,

Austin Shoemaker
