I'm not observing this behavior... if I shutdown the zookeeper server my client doesn't reconnect and I get a disconnect event followed by eventual session expiration.
Which is not the behavior I want :) "Clients connect to a single ZooKeeper server. The client maintains a TCP connection through which it sends requests, gets responses, gets watch events, and sends heart beats. If the TCP connection to the server breaks, the client will connect to a different server." > I don't see this documented anywhere. > I setup 5 zk servers.... if I connect to host1 and am performing some > action like watching for file updates, and host1 fails, I *should* be able > to connect to hosts2-5 just fine. > > But the ZooKeeper object doesn't do this for me.... > > What's the correct behavior here? > > Kevin > > -- Founder/CEO Spinn3r.com Location: San Francisco, CA AIM/YIM: sfburtonator Skype: burtonator Work: http://spinn3r.com
