[jira] [Created] (FLINK-10052) Tolerate temporarily suspended ZooKeeper connections

Till Rohrmann created FLINK-10052:

             Summary: Tolerate temporarily suspended ZooKeeper connections
                 Key: FLINK-10052
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10052
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Distributed Coordination
    Affects Versions: 1.5.2, 1.4.2, 1.6.0
            Reporter: Till Rohrmann

This issue results from FLINK-10011 which uncovered a problem with Flink's HA recovery and proposed the following solution to harden Flink:

The {{ZooKeeperLeaderElectionService}} uses the {{LeaderLatch}} Curator recipe for leader election. The leader latch revokes leadership in case of a suspended ZooKeeper connection. This can be premature in case that the system can reconnect to ZooKeeper before its session expires. The effect of the lost leadership is that all jobs will be canceled and directly restarted after regaining the leadership.

Instead of directly revoking the leadership upon a SUSPENDED ZooKeeper connection, it would be better to wait until the ZooKeeper connection is LOST. That way we would allow the system to reconnect and not lose the leadership. This could be achievable by using Curator's {{LeaderSelector}} instead of the {{LeaderLatch}}.
