RE: Out of memory running ZK unit tests against trunk
In QuorumPeer, when the peer is in LOOKING state we are starting
ReadOnlyZooKeeperServer in a separate thread. And we are shutting down this
server even before startup which has no effect. Also, as this is not a
blocking call QP keeps on spawning new servers.

1) ReadOnlyZooKeeperServer.startup() need not be called in separate a
2) ReadOnlyZooKeeperServer.startup() is not a blocking call. Need to
introduce a method like Leader.lead(), Follower.followLeader()
3) Shutdown should be called only after the a/m blocking call is returned.

Near the end of this test (QuorumZxidSyncTest) there are tons of
threads running - 115 "ProcessThread" threads, similar numbers of

Also I see ~100 ReadOnlyRequestProcessor - why is this running as a
separate thread? (henry/flavio?)

Regardless, I'll enter a 3.4.0 blocker to clean this up - I suspect
that the server shutdown is not shutting down fully for some reason.
