-Re: How dose zookeeper handle fault-detect in distributed storage system

I am not sure that I get your point.
You need a ZooKeeper ensemble with several servers (minimun recommended
number is 3). One of them will be selected as a leader of the ensemble when
required, but normally you don't have to worry about that.
Normally you will need to run the servers in the ZooKeeper ensemble as
independent processes, and each of them should run in a different machine
in order to increase redundancy. These processes could be running in any
machine in your network, including I assume, the machines that host the
dispatch nodes, store nodes and middleware. On top of that, ZooKeeper
clients must be somehow linked with your dispatch/store/middleware nodes
and manage the information stored in the ZooKeeper ensemble.
