Zk and HM run in seperate JVM; so how would running them on the same
machine will cause ZK missing hearbeats?
As far as I know as long as machine is powerful enough to handle the load
of ZK and HM, then it should be fine. One thing to note is that Zk will
work well if you have dedicated disk for it.
