Probably reaching for straws but could you print "path", just to confirm it's what you know it is?

Hi Kevin,

  Thanks for the info. Could you cut and paste the code you are using
that prints the view info?
That would help. We can then create a jira and follow up on that.

Also, a zookeeper client can never go back in time (even if its gets
disconnected and connected back to another server).


Ah, sorry, I meant to include that last time.

This is the function I use to read the cversion:

static int32_t read_path_cversion(zhandle_t *zkhandle, const char
*path) {
     struct Stat stat;
     int zoo_result;

     memset(&stat, 0, sizeof(struct Stat));

     zoo_result = zoo_exists(zkhandle, path, 0,&stat);

     if (zoo_result != ZOK) {
         return -1;

     return stat.cversion;

It gets called by this function, which is called whenever the client
(re)connects to the server or when the watch on the group node gets

static int process_membership_change(zhandle_t *zkhandle, zk_comm_t
*context, const char *path) {
     struct String_vector children;
     int32_t view_before = 0;
     int32_t view_after = view_before + 1;
     int zoo_result = 0;
     int i;

     while (view_before != view_after) {
         view_before = read_path_cversion(zkhandle, path);

         zoo_result = zoo_get_children(zkhandle, path, 1,&children);
         if (zoo_result != ZOK) {
             return zoo_result;

         view_after = read_path_cversion(zkhandle, path);

     printlog(LOG_CRITICAL, "ZK(%" PRIu32 "): %u Beginning new view #%"
PRId32 ".  Unsetting panic...\n", context->comm->id, time(NULL),

     (call application function to restart with group #view_after)

     More application logic

Let me know if any other details would be helpful.
