Re: zkclient dies after UnknownHostException in zk reconnect
Interesting. I haven't had the chance to dive into the zkclient codebase to
understand the root cause yet, but since you mentioned this can cause
ephemeral node loss, I am curious to know how you detected the ephemeral
node loss. Did the Kafka consumer not respond to rebalance events or did
the server not respond to state change events ? Also, ephemeral nodes are
lost only when sessions are expired on the zookeeper server or if clients
close the session actively, how does losing connection lead to ephemeral
node loss?
