how big is your database? it would be good to know the timing of the two calls. shutdown should take very little time.

We start a thread in our application and call QuorumPeerMain.InitializeArgs(). When cleaning-up ZK we call QuorumPeerMain.shutdown() and wait for the thread that is calling InitializeArgs() to finish. These two steps are taking around 60 seconds. I could probably not wait for InitializeArgs() to finish and that might speed up things. However, I am not sure why the cleanup should take such a long time. Can anyone comment on this? Thanks. -Vishal
