I can't comment on the cleanup time, but I can suggest that it is normally not a very good idea to embed Zookeeper in your application. If your application really is distributed, then having ZK survive the demise of any particular instance is a really nice thing. If ZK goes away with your application then you lose a lot of the power of having a reliable and independent coordination service.
I have, as they say, been there and done that. It was not a happy experience. You know what you are doing much more than I possibly could, so embedding ZK might actually make sense. I really don't think so, though. On Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 6:28 PM, Vishal K <vishalm...@gmail.com> wrote: > However, I am not sure why the cleanup should take such a long time.
