Distributed Coordination: Zookeeper libraries provide a foolproof way of coordinating actions and maintaining consistency in a distributed environment. They are crucial in scenarios where we need to manage services deployed over several nodes and ensure all these services work together seamlessly.
Synchronization: They play an essential role in maintaining sync across application states replicated across different nodes. This helps in ensuring that even if a single node goes down, the service keeps running smoothly.
Configuration Management: One of the most common use cases of Zookeeper libraries lies in tracking and managing configuration data for distributed applications. They help in storing and monitoring changes to configuration data across different nodes.
Failover Support: It ensures minimal downtime as it enables quick failover for distributed applications. If a node fails, work can be quickly reassigned to another functioning node.
Zookeeper libraries provide a lot of robust features aimed at maintaining the reliability and scalability of distributed applications. Some of the core functionalities provided by these libraries are as follows:
Sequential Consistency: Updates from a client are applied in the order they are sent.
Atomicity: Updates either succeed or fail. There are no partial results.
Testability: Zookeeper libraries provide options for testing the health of the system and individual nodes, enabling developers to ensure the reliable performance of the software.
Security: They offer built-in security features to protect sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access.
Replicated Data: Data stored in Zookeeper is replicated over all nodes ensuring high availability and reliability.
Navigating the complexities of Zookeeper libraries can present a number of pitfalls. Here are some of the issues to watch out for:
Performance Issues: While Zookeeper libraries are designed to be robust and reliable, they can sometimes cause performance issues when a large number of nodes are involved. It's important to keep a check on the scale of the distributed system.
System Overhead: Running Zookeeper processes involves system overhead. Over-reliance can lead to a system slowdown. It's essential to manage resources wisely.
Slow Zookeeper operations: Operations might take a while and might even block indefinitely if the Zookeeper ensemble is undergoing a leader election. Therefore, handling timeouts properly is crucial.
Understand the Guarantee: Understand the different levels of guarantee Zookeeper offers. Strong consistency is guaranteed on a per-client basis, but total order of all updates is not guaranteed.
