entire cluster dies with EOFException
Hi all,

We have a 5 node zookeeper cluster that has been operating normally for
several months.  Starting a few days ago, the entire cluster crashes a few
times per day, all nodes at the exact same time.  We can't track down the
exact issue, but deleting the snapshots and logs and restarting resolves.

We are running exhibitor to monitor the cluster.

It appears that something bad gets into the logs, causing an EOFException
and this cascades through the entire cluster:

2014-07-04 12:55:26,328 [myid:1] - WARN
 [QuorumPeer[myid=1]/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2181:Follower@89] - Exception when
following the leader
        at java.io.DataInputStream.readInt(DataInputStream.java:375)
2014-07-04 12:55:26,328 [myid:1] - INFO
 [QuorumPeer[myid=1]/0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:2181:Follower@166] - shutdown called
java.lang.Exception: shutdown Follower
Then the server dies, exhibitor tries to restart each node, and they all
get stuck trying to replay the bad transaction, logging things like:

And the cluster is dead.  The only way we have found to recover is to
delete all of the data and restart.

Anyone seen this before?  Any ideas how I can track down what is causing
the EOFException, or insulate zookeeper from completely crashing?
