Re: zk connection leak with TableInput/OutputFormat (CDH3b4, 0.90.1)
FWIW, I created a test program that demonstrates the issue. The program creates an HBase table, populates it with 10 rows, then runs a simple map-reduce job 10 times in succession, and then goes into a wait state. The test uses gradle so you'll need to download that.

Before running, telnet to Zookeeper and type 'stats' to get the connections. Then run the program using 'gradle run'. Finally, telnet to Zookeeper again and type 'stats' to get the connections.

I'd be interested to see if others are seeing the same behavior I am.

You can download the code here:

I'll open a JIRA issue after I do a little more research into the problem.
